WFA Annual Service of Remembrance at the Cenotaph: Monday, 11 November 2013


Attendance in the procession at the Cenotaph ceremony and in the service Guards' Chapel is open to all Western Front Association members. Members of the public are warmly welcomed to view the Cenotaph Ceremony.

At the Cenotaph

We must assemble in King Charles Street behind the archway and not at the junction with Whitehall. This will assist the marshals and will allow an orderly column of members to proceed to the Cenotaph. Please assemble no later than 10.30am.

Wreath Layers: Please Note!

Please order your wreath from the Royal British Legion early (tel: 01622 717172). Instructions regarding wreath laying will be conducted by the Parade Steward Colin Wagstaff between 10.10 to 10.20 am on the day. Medals should be worn.

A very limited amount of disabled parking facilities will be available in King Charles Street, provided that the driver remains with the vehicle at all times. Vehicle details must be communicated to the Parade Marshal John Chester ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

A Service of Remembrance will be held in the Guards Chapel after the ceremony at the Cenotaph.

You do not have to be a WFA member to attend the service in the Chapel. All are welcome.

Site news

The WFA's site is undergoing a major rebuilding programme at the moment. We are moving to a new, faster server, with a new version of the content management system that has powered the site successfully since 2008. We will introduce a slightly different look and feel to that currently.
You may spot the phrase "Warning: Illegal string offset 'active' in .... " on parts of the website. Do not be alarmed! These are simply alerts but they do not constitute a danger to you or your computer. They are the result of a recent (current) server software upgrade that means there is a minor issue when listings are generated.
The website content (and, for the most part, its structure) will be unchanged and is indeed being expanded and improved. Search will be much more able to find the material you want in a site of almost 4,000 articles, and we will make other improvements such as content tagging.
We hope the work will be complete by December 2014.
