REMEMBRANCE: Both the Cenotaph & Field of Remembrance events have reduced their attendance numbers significantly. Those chosen to represent the Association have been notified, therefore if you’ve not been notified you will not be able to attend these events as part of the Association’s allocation.
PUBLIC ACCESS – It is expected that several restrictions will be in place for public viewing for Remembrance weekend as well. Family and friends wishing to view the march past are advised to check the latest guidance a week prior to Remembrance Sunday.
LOCAL EVENTS – We do not know what each individual village, town, city or community may be planning for their local Act of Remembrance, but we recommend you keep in touch with the civic offices and/or local Royal British Legion. Given the current, and changing nature of Covid-19 restrictions and guidelines we suggest you support your local event and fly the flag for female army veterans with your usual pride.
