The British High Commission Yaounde, some diplomatic missions in Cameroon, government officials along side ex-service men in Cameroon to commemorate those who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice in conflicts past and present and help people understand the importance of Remembrance, so those sacrifices are never forgotten. The service will start promptly at 10:45 am.
