Routes of Remembrance

Keeping Remembrance Moving...

Routes of Remembrance is our poignant and unique event which will see wreaths and tributes travelling all over the UK mainland and to significant locations overseas, as part of the our plans to honour and remember those who have fallen as a result of serving in the Armed Forces.

Following the huge success of our award-winning 
'Poppies To Paddington' event last year, we are working closely with rail and transport companies as well as military units, Veterans, community groups and other charities to create an inclusive, collaborative and very special event.

Wreaths have already begun poignant tours around the UK and beyond including the entire Tour of Britain Cycle Race route from Penzance to Aberdeen, Orkney, Shetland, Northern Ireland, Cyprus, Jersey and even The Falklands Islands.

From 10th November, thanks to amazing support from many Train Operating Companies and organisations working within the rail and transport industries, wreaths will begin making their way along the UK's transport networks heading to destinations all over the nation where they will be laid in tribute to the fallen.

Last year, dozens of Veterans, military personnel, VIPs and representatives from many companies and organisations, were involved in delivering wreaths to railway stations which were then loaded onto trains bound for Paddington Station. At 1100, the wreaths formed the centrepiece of a very poignant Remembrance Service. This year, many more stations, routes and people will be involved, bringing communities together to remember those who have died on active duty or as a result of injuries sustained whilst serving in our Armed Forces.

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 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 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.
