This moment of silence starts the service at the Cenotaph memorial in London.

The service will honour the Armed Forces community, British and Commonwealth veterans, the Allies that fought alongside the UK and the civilian servicemen and women involved in the two World Wars and later conflicts.

This year’s remembrance also marks 75 years since the great battles of 1944, including Monte Cassino, Kohima and Imphal, D-Day and the collaboration of Commonwealth and Allied forces.

Also being honoured is the 100th anniversary of the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) “and the role of the secret services whose courage and work is so often unknown”.
