  • Description

    TODAY (SUNDAY) WAS REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY IN BRITAIN - THE DAY SET ASIDE IN REMEMBRANCE OF THOSE WHO DIED IN THE TWO WORLD WARS. A VERY LARGE CROWD GATHERED IN WHITEHALL - THE LONDON STREET HOUSING MOST OF BRITAIN'S MAIN GOVERNMENT OFFICES - TO WATCH QUEEN ELIZABETH LAY A WREATH AT THE FOOT OF THE CENOTAPH.

    THE CEREMONY CAME IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TWO MINUTES OF SILENCE IN WHICH THE CROWD - THE LARGEST AT A CENOTAPH CEREMONY FOR MANY YEARS - BOWED THEIR HEADS IN PRAYER AND IN PRIVATE REMEMBRANCE. THE QUEEN PLACED A WREATH OF POPPIES AND LAUREL LEAVES AT THE FOOT OF THE MONUMENT BEFORE THE OTHER MEMBERS OF THE ROYAL FAMILY ADDED THEIR FLORAL TRIBUTES.

    WREATHS WERE ALSO LAID BY THE PRIME MINISTER, MR. HAROLD WILSON, THE LEADER OF THE OPPOSITION, MR. EDWARD HEATH, AND THE LEADER OF THE PARLIAMENTARY LIBERAL PARTY, MR. JO GRIMOND. THEY WERE FOLLOWED BY LONDON REPRESENTATIVES OF COMMONWEALTH AND OTHER COUNTRIES. FOR THE FIRST TIME THERE WAS NO REPRESENTATIVE FROM RHODESIA PRESENT.
