HERE are the details for the Remembrance Sunday event taking place in Liverpool on Sunday November 12.

Thousands of people from across Merseyside are expected to gather for the service which takes place on the plateau at St George’s Hall.

The Band of The Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment and The Pipes and Drums of The Liverpool Scottish Regimental Association will play from 10.40am, in the run up to the start of the service.

There will be readings and prayers from The Bishop of Liverpool, the Rt Revd Dr John Perumbalath, and The Archbishop of Liverpool, The Most Reverend Malcolm McMahon.

This year’s guest speaker is Tracy Dunn-Bridgeman, who lost her son, Kingsman Jason Dunn-Bridgeman, in the war in Afghanistan in 2009.

He died while serving with the 2nd Battalion of The Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment when his platoon became locked in an exchange of fire with the enemy during a foot patrol in the Babaji district of Helmand province.

Tracy was later presented with Merseyside’s first Elizabeth Cross in honour of her son’s bravery.

Father Taras Khomych representing the Ukrainian Catholic Church will lay a wreath to UK and Commonwealth personnel who lost their lives in two World Wars and conflicts since.

At 11am the traditional firing of the gun will signify the start of the two-minute silence, with another firing to mark its conclusion.

Following the silence, the traditional wreath-laying and service by key civic, military and religious leaders and Cadets, the parade will then march from St George’s Plateau to salute the Cenotaph.

The Hall of Remembrance at Liverpool Town Hall will be open to the public on Sunday, November 12 between 12 noon and 4pm.
