This year is the 100th anniversary of the Royal British Legion and marks 100 years since our collective remembrance traditions were first brought together.
The poppy, two-minute silence, Armistice Day, the service for the Unknown Warrior and the march past at the Cenotaph are traditions that millions of people throughout the United Kingdom participate in every year.
This year, the Royal British Legion is reflecting on what the next 100 years of Remembrance could look like by how, and why, we remember. It is also supporting the teaching of Remembrance throughout the UK and has designed a range of free teaching resources for use at school or in the home.
Speaking about Remembrance 2021 Aberconwy MP Robin Millar said “It is vital that we remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in defending our freedom. I commend the Royal British Legion for all that they do in keeping their memories alive and in supporting veterans, their families, and the families of the fallen today.”
Continuing, Robin said “Remembrance should be an integral part of the curriculum and I encourage schools and parents here in Aberconwy, and throughout the UK, to use the fantastic resources made available by the Legion to teach Remembrance this year and every year going forward. I am also delighted that the resources are fully available in Welsh – diolch.”
