  • Description

    Remembrance Sunday - forty years after the first Armistice Day. At the Cenotaph in london November 9 - focal point of a nation's homage - crowds gathered to pay their silent tribute.

    In a wheeled-chair a man who's been in every armistice parade - Sir Brunel Cohen V.C.

    Round the cenotaph uniformed detachments of famous regiments.

    The Prime Minister was there, with members of the government. And on the Home Office balcony, members of the Royal family.

    Then the Queen came out and the hands of Big Ben pointed to the approaching silence.

    Two minutes of silent memories - then the Queen lays her wreath of scarlet poppies at the foot of the cenotaph.

    Now a wreath from the Duke of Edinburgh. The Queen, a slight figure in black - representative of all who mourn.
