Words Of Remembrance

Lest We Forget.  

These powerful words serve as a reminder that those who serve to defend the nation and our way of life are always in our thoughts, as is their sacrifice in our name. 

We not only remember and honour those who gave their lives during the First and Second World Wars, but those who have deployed in all wars. 

Here, we reflect on all those wars and conflicts over time in which British and Commonwealth personnel have given the ultimate sacrifice in defence of the nation. 

Click the Words of Remembrance panel below to view our Words of Remembrance story and digital map which examines the wars and conflicts in which British personnel have given the ultimate sacrifice.

We Will Remember Them.

We will also be sharing your Words of Remembrance this morning in our Remembrance Wall below.

This could be in the form of a poem, reflections on a loved one or fallen comrade, a personal story of remembrance or other words that pay respects to the fallen.

To share your own words, you can post on social media with #RemembranceWall or send in your words to [email protected].

You can also read some moving memories, stories and poems that we have received from our community in the Words of Remembrance story in the link above.
