UKRD Remembrance Day

At 11am on Monday 11th November we'll be remembering those who have sacrificed their lives for their country.

This year Remembrance Sunday will be on Sunday 10th November.

Many people associate Remembrance Day with heroes of D-Day or the Battle of Britain's Spitfire pilots. Some people think of the deeds of the SAS during the Falklands conflict or, of course, Flanders Fields from World War One, carpeted in poppies growing where so many men lost their lives.

But in the last few years it's also been about the nation showing its support for the soldiers returning injured and traumatised from current conflicts.

Join us in observing a 2 minute silence onair at 11am on Monday 11th November.
