Remembrance Day, 11th November, started at 11am with two minutes silence marked by the firing of guns from the King’s Troop on Horse Guards Parade followed by a service at the Cenotaph. TTIS Vice President, The Right Revd Dame Sarah Mullally, Bishop of London led the service of remembrance which was attended by the President of Germany for the first time. 

St James’s Park has made a special contribution this year by hosting the “Fields of Battle, Lands of Peace” exhibition with superb images of the sites of battlefields by photographer Michael St Maur Sheil. It demonstrates the “healing power” of the land and minds over the raw memory of war. The exhibition continues until 19th November.
