The traditional wreath laying and two-minute silence at the city’s war memorial on Victoria Embankment took place today.
There was a full service with music played throughout by The Nottinghamshire Band of The Royal Engineers (volunteers) which were accompanied by the Nottingham Hospitals Choir.
The ceremony will began with the traditional parade. From the west side closure (at Wilford Grove/Embankment), the parade comprised Armed Forces personnel, cadets, and veterans before marching down to the memorial.
After the service, the parade departed from the memorial and march down towards the east side closure (Embankment – Bunbury Street) saluting the Lord Lieutenant, before falling out inside the road closure at the Bunbury Street end.
Under the instruction of the Regimental Sergeant Major, wreaths were laid by the Lord-Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire, Lord Mayor of Nottingham, and Chairman of Nottinghamshire County Council, as well as representatives from other authorities, military, and faith communities.
Cllr Dave Trimble, Lord Mayor of Nottingham said: “It is important for Nottingham that we have the opportunity to remember those who sacrificed their lives in conflict and to pay our respects to them. The measures we put in place meant that the public can safely join us to commemorate this important day and will be able to take part as we gather for the annual Service of Remembrance as it returns to the Victoria Embankment this year.”
