Veterans March Past the Cenotaph London During Remembrance Sunday Service

Veterans from all Services march past the Cenotaph in London on Remembrance Sunday.

 

The Queen led the Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph in London, as commemorations were held across the UK in honour of those who died in wars and conflicts.

 

Thousands of current and former military personnel joined the Queen, together with the main party leaders, who also laid wreaths.

 

2010 marked the 90th anniversary of both the Cenotaph and the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior, who was interred in Westminster Abbey.

 

The Queen was the first to lay a wreath at the Cenotaph, followed by other members of the Royal Family, Prime Minister David Cameron, Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg, and opposition leader Ed Miliband.

 

About 4,500 ex-servicemen and women took part in a march past the Cenotaph.
