Sunday 11th November 2018

A two minutes silence was held all over the country at the eleventh hour on the eleventh day of the eleventh month.

In 2018 the commemorations also signify Armistice, the centenary of the end of the First World War.

The Queen led the nation in remembrance from a balcony overlooking the Cenotaph at the national memorial in Whitehall. The Prince of Wales laid a wreath at the Cenotaph on behalf of his mother for the second year in a row.

The Monarch was flanked by the Duchess of Cornwall and the Duchess of Cambridge – while the Duchess of Sussex, the Countess of Wessex stood on neighbouring balconies.

The Royal British Legion launched their annual Poppy Appeal fundraising campaign which raises vital funds for the Armed Forces community.  In 2018 The Royal British Legion led the nation in saying Thank You to the First World War generation, all who served, sacrificed and changed our world.

LMD provided LED Screens to various events all over the UK, with a selection of their screens going to Manchester & Nottingham.
