Trafalgar Square

Veterans For Peace UK to walk to The Cenotaph with a message of peace.

In opposition to the pro-war tone of the state parade. Veterans For Peace UK will walk to the Cenotaph under a banner which reflects the original sentiment of the Armistice "NEVER AGAIN".

Once there D-Day veteran Jim Radford will sing '1916' and Afghanistan veteran John Boulton will read 'Suicide in the Trenches' by Siegfried Sassoon. A wreath of white & red poppies will then be laid by Northern Ireland veteran John Bourton. After The Last Post has been played there will be a period of silence in which to remember all victims of war.

Veterans For Peace UK have been active since 2011. They have a wide range of members from all three services ranging in experience from D-Day to Afghanistan. They work toward increasing public awareness of the true costs of war for the larger purpose of world peace.
