 Routes of Remembrance 

Keeping Remembrance Moving...

Routes of Remembrance honours the fallen of all conflicts and those who have fallen as a result of injuries, both physical and mental, who have fallen long after the guns have stopped.

 

In collaboration with many organisations, groups and military units, Routes of Remembrance connects communities across the globe to carry wreaths and tributes on poignant journeys, travelling by rail, road, sea and air, as part of the our plans to honour and remember those who have given their lives in service.

Following the huge success and poignancy of our 'Poppies To Paddington' event last year, we expanded our unique act of remembrance to create Routes of Remembrance which covered the whole of the UK and beyond, enabling communities, Veterans, military units and many other organisations and groups to be a part of a very special tribute to our fallen.

Tributes completed poignant tours including England, Wales, Scotland and the Scottish Isles, Northern Ireland, Cyprus, Jersey and even The Falklands; one wreath covered more than 3000kms travelling from Penzance to Aberdeen, Orkney, Shetland, Caithness, Wick, Inverness, Belfast, Isle of Man, Windsor and to several sites in London, finishing at HMS Belfast and the Tower of London.

On 11th November, hundreds of wreaths and tributes journeyed from locations all over the UK to key destinations in time for Remembrance Services to honour the fallen.

MISSION MERLIN - 814Sqn RNAS Culdrose lend very special support to Routes of Remembrance.

Crew of Callsign Tiger 64 from 814 Sqn at RNAS Culdrose gave incredible support to our Routes of Remembrance events by touring a wreath from Culdrose to the Scilly Isles and then over to Land's End where they were welcomed by a crowd which included several Veterans. This incredible moment was captured by Pete McQuie of RNAS Culdrose.

We would like to say a huge thank you to the crew, station staff and everyone involved in making this wonderful spectacle a reality!

 

We were delighted to have amazing support from the AJ Bell Tour of Britain Cycle Race this year who not only allowed The Veterans Charity to put seven Veterans onto the start line of Stage One in Penzance but also agreed to take 'the first of the many' wreaths all the way from Penzance to the finish line in Aberdeen - travelling in the Race Director's vehicle!

The seven Veterans, all of them keen cyclists, lined up on the start line and set off ahead of the race participants and, thanks to the generosity of the Tour organisers, were able to complete around two miles of Stage One - "it was awesome...an unforgettable experience" said one Veteran.

Several of our team set up a supporter point at our Veterans' Hub near Hayle and a fabulous crowd gathered with us.

Our sincere thanks to everyone at the tour for their kind and passionate support and for helping us to pay respects to the fallen.
