In accordance with Commonwealth tradition the British and Canadian Embassies are organising an Act of Remembrance on Sunday 9 November 2014. This year the Service is of particular relevance as 2014 is the 100th Anniversary of the start of the First World War.

By permission of the Akim, the Service will take place at 10.50am at the Monument to the Defenders of the Fatherland in the Park on Manas Street at the junction with Tashenova Street. The Remembrance Service will last approximately 20 minutes and will be conducted by Father Pawel Blok.

Poppies should be worn above the left breast and are now available for collection from the British Embassy’s main reception area. All donations are appreciated and will be forwarded to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal Fund.
