Lest we forget: London 100 years on from World War One
10th November 2014

One hundred years on from the start of the First World War, those who fell were commemorated at the Tower of London during yesterday’s Remembrance services. 

The service also commemorated the many other thousands of military personnel who have served for the United Kingdom. 

A former serviceman explains why Remembrance services continue to be so important and why it means to much to him.

On Sunday, thousands came to pay their respects and to witness the ceramic poppies that surround the tower.  

It is estimated that as many as four million people have seen the poppy instillation.
