Remembrance Day: Service Held in Staffordshire

9 November 2014, 08:15

A special service is being held at the National Memorial Arboretum for Remembrance sunday.

It will commemorate the thousands of service men and women who have lost their lives during conflict.

David Cameron's described today as "particularly poignant" as it marks 100 years since the start of the First World War.

A service for remembrance will also be held on Wednesday 11th November, in the Armed Forces memorial, which is designed so that on the 11th hour, of the 11th day of the 11th month, a shaft of sunlight hits it's inner and outer walls as a two minute silence takes place.

It pays tribute to 16,000 soldiers who have died on duty, or as a result of terrorism, since 1948.
