Wear your poppy with pride for the Armistice Centenary

People across Britain are preparing to pay their respects  as this Remembrance Sunday marks 100 years since the end of the First World War

Events are being held across the UK on 11 November to mark the occasion, to remember the fallen and give thanks for peace and those who returned from the Great War a century ago.

As well as the traditional Remembrance Sunday celebration at the Cenotaph on Whitehall, London, a call for bells is also being held across Britain and Germany at 12.30 GMT in tribute to the relief felt when the guns fell silent.

As well as attending events on the day, The Royal British Legion has appealed for Britons to wear their poppies with pride.

Since 1920 the Remembrance Poppy has been worn to commemorate members of the armed forces who have lost their lives in war and they are traditionally worn from the end of October until Remembrance Sunday each year.

Money raised goes to The Royal British Legion, a charity which looks after serving and ex-servicemen, women and their dependents who are in need, financially or otherwise.
