Remembrance Day on Sunday, November 13 will see veterans, civic leaders, members of the Royal British Legion and the public gather in town squares, at cenotaphs and in front of council houses to honour armed forces members who have died in the line of duty.

Members of the public will be able to line the streets to see the parades go by and there will be opportunities to lay wreathes and pause for two minutes of silence, preceded by The Last Post and followed by The Reveille.

All council and civic leaders will be part of events across the region on both Sunday for Remembrance Day and Armistice Day on Friday, including large scale events at the National Memorial Arboretum in Alrewas.
