Every year Blind Veterans UK and its vision-impaired ex-Service men and women take part in the National Remembrance Commemorations.
What is Remembrance?
Every year in the United Kingdom we hold a National Service of Remembrance to remember everyone who has lost their lives or suffered as a result of conflict.
About the service
The service is held at the Cenotaph in Whitehall on Remembrance Sunday, this year it is on 13 November. Current and past veterans attend the parade to honour their lost comrades and lay a wreath in their honour.
This year over 100 blind veterans will march to the Cenotaph. You can read their stories below.
