Remembrance – by Stephen Simpson


Soldiers place thousands of wooden crosses in the Royal British Legion’s Field of Remembrance, at Westminster Abbey.

London, England-based photographer Stephen Simpson shares photos of Remembrance Sunday in London.

Over the past couple of days I have been covering acts of remembrance in London. Every year Britain remembers those killed and injured in conflict on Remembrance Sunday which, this year, coincides with Armistice Day, the commemoration of the end of Word War One. The country falls silent at 11 o’clock with a two minute silence. It always amazes me how many people want to pay their respects to our armed forces by taking part in these events, young and old alike.
