Members of uniformed bodies from government and non-govermental organisations will be on parade.

The organising committee is inviting members of the public, who have been honoured with medals to wear their decorations to Sunday’s event.

The Parade, Wreath Laying Ceremony and Church Service on Remembrance Day Sunday is open to the public and will also be streamed live by the Government Information Unit (GIU) on its YouTube and Facebook page.
