The Salvation Army is today joining with the nation in commemorating Remembrance Sunday.

As is tradition, The Salvation Army will join other church leaders, dignitaries and war veterans in laying a wreath at the Cenotaph in Whitehall, London as part of the National Service of Remembrance this morning.

Following this, 36 officers and Salvationists will be on the March Past to commemorate The Salvation Army’s relief efforts in world wars and to recognise the support given to those in armed conflicts today.

After the parade, Regent Hall Salvation Army band will march at 12.30pm from their church on Oxford Street to the Cenotaph, where they will hold a short memorial service. The Emergency Services mobile canteen will also be present at Horse Guards Parade, serving tea and coffee.

“Many members of The Salvation Army across the country will be involved in local commemorations this morning,” said The Salvation Army’s Chief Secretary Colonel David Hinton who is attending the commemorations.

“We pause today to honour all those who have lost their lives in conflict, and reflect on their great sacrifice, at the same time remembering those who still bear the pain of losing family members and friends in this way.”
