20th September 2014 – The Northern Ireland Veterans’ Association Service of Remembrance

The Northern Ireland Veterans’ Association Service of Remembrance 2014 will be held at 11.30am on Saturday 20th September 2014 at the National Memorial Arboretum, Alrewas, Staffordshire.

The service will commemorate and remember all those who lost their lives in service of the Crown as a result of the conflict in N. Ireland. The service will be followed by a parade down to the Ulster Ash Grove for the laying of wreaths. Following the laying of the wreaths, there will be a 15 minute pause before the parade forms up for the return march to the visitor centre during which the guest of honour will take the salute. The service is open to all and all Associations are welcome to parade their standards. It would be appreciated if Associations arranging for groups of their members to attend could notify us of numbers and confirm if their standard will be parading.

    As a Northern Ireland Veterans Association member I was so pleased to see those of you who attended this years Remembrance Service at the National Arboretum taking the salute. I will be in London in November to see some of you again at the Cenotaph on Saturday an event I was unaware of until relatively recently.
