London Museum receives royal guest in remembrance services

Published: Monday 10th of November 2008

This weekend saw the Britain's war dead commemorated as part of the annual services across the nation.

Heir to the throne Prince Charles made his visit to the Guard's Museum in London's Wellington Barracks on Remembrance Sunday.

The Prince, who will celebrate his 60th birthday this Thursday, decorated seven servicemen at the London attraction, after having laid a wreath at the Welsh Guards' Memorial.

At services held all over the country, serving members of the armed forces and veterans of all ages gather to remember those who lost their lives in conflict down the years.

This year's Remembrance Sunday takes on additional significance this year as it markers the 80th anniversary of the Armistice which ended the First World War in 1918.

The last remaining British soldier – affectionately referred to as a 'tommy' - from the conflict is Harry Patch who, at the age of 110, is the second oldest living man in the UK.

Visitors to London's Guards' Museum can enjoy free entry to the attraction with their LondonPass, saving £3 for adults.
