What does Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday mean to our clients?

Every year, we purchase our poppy, reflect during the two minute silence on Armistice Day and attend a service or tune in from home on Remembrance Sunday.

This year’s Remembrance Sunday on 14 November 2021, will mark 100 years of Remembrance, on the centenary of the creation of the Royal British Legion in 1921.

To mark 100 years of Remembrance, our Military team have posed the question: ‘What does Remembrance mean to our clients, our military contacts and some members of our team who have close, personal contacts in the military?’

We wanted the chance to listen and learn from people who are currently serving or ex-service personnel, to gain a real insight from the people who have experienced serving in the Armed Forces and the impact this has on their lives and the lives of their friends and family.

This Remembrance Sunday, we will be sharing their quotes of Remembrance on our @HJmilitary twitter.

By sharing their quotes of Remembrance, we will pay tribute to the special contribution of the military community, thank those who serve and sacrifice in the Armed forces and reflect together in support of those memories from members of the military community close to Hugh James.

Lest we forget.
