Armistice Day 2020
Remembrance has been very different this year. Due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, many of us will find ourselves unable to attend Acts of Remembrance as we normally would have done.
Remembrance is very important for us at the Northern Ireland War Memorial Museum. On the morning of Wednesday 11th November 2020 at 11am a member of staff will lay a wreath on a memorial in the museum to commemorate local lives lost in the First and Second World War.
In order to allow people to share in this Act of Remembrance, we have created a short video which can watched at home this Armistice Day.
The video features Bugler Andrew Carlisle of Hillsborough Fort Guard sounding the Last Post followed by one minutes’ silence. Rolls of Honour listing the names of the fallen and various memorials in the museum are also featured. The video concludes with the sounding of Reveille and the Kohima Epitaph.
We hope that this video will allow you to meaningfully connect with Remembrance and join with others in remembering together on Armistice Day.
