Garden of Remembrance at St Paul's
5 November

On a bright dry day the Master and Clerk attended the annual opening of the Garden of Remembrance at St Paul’s on Monday 5 November. The day started with a breakfast in the Crypt followed by an address by the National Chairman of the Royal British Legion who explained the significance of the event on the 100th anniversary of the 1918 Armistice. He also offered his heartfelt thanks to the Livery Companies for the support that they continue to give to the Royal British Legion. The service itself took place outside in the Garden of Remembrance with the Lord Mayor in attendance and music provided by a military band. Following the Last Post and two minutes silence and marshalled by staff from the Honourable Artillery Company, the Masters of all the Livery Companies planted crosses in the Garden. It was a most poignant event highlighting the close links between the Livery Companies, the Royal British Legion and the Armed Forces past and present.
