The British Ambassador, His Excellency Simon Martin CMG, hosted the annual Remembrance Service and Wreath Laying Ceremony in the gardens of the British Embassy this morning. The Ambassador was joined by members of the diplomatic corps and representatives from the British armed forces, as well as service personnel from several nations and members of the British Community.
Ambassador Simon Martin said: “This is always a very special event and this year, 2018, marks the extra special anniversary of the centenary of the Armistice. This event provides us with an opportunity to remember the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women involved in the two World Wars and later conflicts.”
An additional “Bells for Peace” celebration was held at St Christopher’s cathedral, as part of an international bell ringing programme to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War
