The event will not only commemorate British, Commonwealth, and allied personnel, but all those who have been affected in all conflicts. It serves as a reminder that nations who fought so bitterly against each other can come together to promote peace and stability in the modern world.

Wreaths will be laid at the Embassy War Memorial by Ambassadors or their representatives, by War Veterans’ organisations and by representatives from associations and societies in Bangkok. Those attending the service on 12 November are asked to gather in silence from 10:20 hrs and be seated by 10:40 hrs.
