To commemorate Remembrance Day, the Foreign Secretary William Hague will lay a wreath in memory of the courageous 18 men and women whose lives were tragically cut short in the cause of peace and as a result of terrorism and violence while serving our country and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office overseas. The Foreign Secretary will lay the wreath at the Diplomatic Service Memorial inside the Foreign and Commonwealth Office building on Monday 12 November.
The Foreign Secretary will also take part in the national Remembrance Day ceremony and lay a wreath at the Cenotaph on Sunday 11 November.
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office works around the world to help avert and reduce conflict; from providing support for economic and political reform in the Middle East to supporting Somalia’s new elected leaders.
