British Ambassador Tim Barrow and Defence Attache Air Commodore Carl Scott joined their counterparts from Commonwealth, Allied and other countries to mark this year’s Remembrance Service in Moscow.

The ceremony, held at the city’s St Andrew’s Church, is a national event in the UK, one of the most significant events in the military calendar, and also commemorated in all overseas territories and wherever British service personnel are serving throughout the world.

35 Russian World War II veterans also took part in the ceremony and laid flowers. British Embassy staff and the Church congregation expressed support for the Royal British Legion’s charity work through the Poppy Appeal collecting £1,500.

Following the Service a reception was held at the Ambassador’s Residence, hosted by Her Majesty Ambassador.
