MI5 marks Armistice Day 2019 with Remembrance service and wreath laying

MI5 today joined the country in a two minute silence to mark Armistice Day and remember the sacrifice of those who have lost their lives to protect our country. A Remembrance Day service was held at Thames House, MI5’s headquarters, to provide staff with an opportunity to pay their respects, with a wreath laid at MI5’s poppy memorial.

Yesterday (Sunday, 10 November) MI5 Director General Andrew Parker joined veterans, serving armed forces personnel, Government representatives and the Royal Family at the National Service of Remembrance at the Cenotaph. In advance of the service, he also attended a small reception for veterans hosted by the Prime Minister at 10 Downing Street.

Earlier this year, the Royal British Legion announced that the symbol of the red poppy will now represent a tribute to civilian victims of war and acts of terrorism, along with the UK’s armed forces.
