British Troops Remembering the Fallen in Afghanistan

Members of all three services gathered at Kandahar Air base to pay their respects during a service of Remembrance in November 2014.

 

As the nation gathered to pay its respects to the Fallen of the two World Wars, and conflicts throughout the decades since, UK forces in Afghanistan held poignant services as the UK combat mission drew to an end in 2014.

 

On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918, the First World War Armistice was signed. Every year since we have remembered those who have given their lives for peace and freedom. Today at eleven o’clock International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) personnel and civilians gathered for Remembrance service Kandahar.
