Steve McCabe MP joins Veterans in his constituency to commemorate Remembrance Sunday

Steve McCabe MP, will be marching with Veterans from the Kings Norton Royal British Legion this Sunday to honour those who died in service and continue to serve in the forces.

Remembrance Sunday marks the contribution of ex servicemen and has been observed in Britain and Commonwealth countries since the end of World War One. The day commemorates those who died in service in the First and Second World Wars. In 1980 the ceremony was extended to the remembrance of all those who have suffered and died in conflict in the service of their country and to those who mourn them.

With troops on duty in Afghanistan and other conflict zones across the world, Remembrance Sunday is as important as ever.  At the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month a two minute silence is observed in churches, schools and communities across the country.

Steve McCabe MP said:

“I am honoured to take part in Remembrance services in Birmingham which have been held in the city since 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War One. On Sunday 10th November at 10.30am I will be walking from Manningford Hall to the Kings Norton Royal British Legion as part of a Remembrance Service to lay a wreath and pay my respects.”
