Remembrance

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 in November. Current and past veterans attend the parade to honour their lost comrades and lay a wreath in their honour.  Each year over 100 blind veterans march to the Cenotaph. You can read about our 2017 marchers here or read more veteran stories from past years below.
