Remembrance Day is a memorial day observed in Commonwealth Countries each year, on 11 November, to remember those of the Armed Forces who have died in their line of duty since the First World War.

On St Helena, Remembrance Day is commemorated with a special service at the Cenotaph in Jamestown. This year the Remembrance Day Service will be held on Sunday 9 November 2014.

Members of the public attending the ceremony on Sunday should be present at the Cenotaph by 10.40am. Acting Governor, Mr Sean Burns and Mrs Burns, will arrive at 10.55am and the ceremony will begin promptly at 11am with a 2 minute silence.  The service will continue, followed by the laying of wreaths.

The end of the service will be marked with the marching of uniformed contingents from the Cenotaph onto the Grand Parade for the salute from the Acting Governor and Acting Director of Police on the Court House steps.
