The Cenotaph, Whitehall, Westminster, London SW1A 2ET, UK


About The Event

Application for tickets is via Regimental Associations.  The Royal British Legion has nominated our Association Office as the registration point for our Association members, and former members of the  Rifles, Light Infantry, and KOYLI veterans from our area to apply for tickets to participate in the parade.  We have to provide the RBL with an estimate of the number of places we would like for eligible members at this year's Cenotaph Parade by Friday 5 May 2023.

IMPORTANT NOTE - The Association will upload your details to the RBL database.  The RBL will email individuals at the email address you provided.  Individuals are responsible for completing all actions detailed in the email.  Failure to comply with the RBL email will result in no ticket being issued to the individual 


Associations are asked to prioritise individuals who adequately reflect the depth and breadth of the veteran community with priority given to:

  • Ex-service personnel and civilians from the UK and the Commonwealth who have served the Crown.
  • Wives, husbands, or civil partners of those who died as a result of their service in His Majesty’s Armed Forces.
  • A      carer of a veteran requiring wheelchair assistance.

Please note, this is a veterans’ parade, therefore Armed Forces personnel are not permitted to take part. Civilians cannot take part unless they meet the eligibility criteria above.

As any carer accompanying a veteran will be included within the 10,000 attendance cap; where appropriate, the option of one veteran assisting another for the duration of the dispersal should be considered.
