Lambeth: Honouring the service and sacrifice of those who fought for our country

Ceremonies will be held across the country as the UK honours the service and sacrifice of our Armed Forces community, the British and Commonwealth veterans, the Allies that fought alongside us and the civilian servicemen and women involved in the two World Wars and later conflicts.

Cllr Donatus Anyanwu, Cabinet Member for Stronger Communities, Leisure and Sports, said: “I will be joining Lambeth residents to pay our respects to the nation’s war dead on Remembrance Sunday to honour the men and women from all backgrounds and all parts of the world who gave their lives so we could be free.”
