Cenotaph Parade 2017 - Closing date is rapidly approaching
PLEAE NOTE: CLOSING DATE FOR APPLICATIONS ARE DUE BY 12NOON FRIDAY 15Th SEPTEMBER.
We currently have only filled 13 out of the 65 places. Please show your support and attend this memorial event.
Audrey has applied for tickets for the Cenotaph Veterans’ Parade in Whitehall on Sunday 12 November 2017.
And is pleased to inform you that we have an allocation of 65 tickets the most we have ever received and it would be fantastic to fill all the places and show how our organisation contributed to our country over the 125 years of service.
The British Legion will allow carers to accompany any veteran, as long as we include them in our ticket allocation, if you have any senior members who would like to be involved please invite and accompany them.
As I am sure you understand, the Cenotaph Parade is oversubscribed and there are a maximum of 10,000 places available. The Royal British Legions aim is to achieve a balance of representation across that total which accurately reflects the wider Veteran community, including from the Commonwealth. The Legion seeks to fairly ensure that as many Veteran Associations and Military Charities as is possible are represented on the parade. Within that intent, numbers have been allocated by prioritising those who have served on operations, both military and civilian, followed by others representing their remaining ex-Service membership and Bereaved Spouses.
