This year the annual Royal British Legion Service of Remembrance will be held at the Cenotaph on Whitehall on Sunday, 8th November.
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 ex Rifles, Light Infantry, and KOYLI veterans from our area to apply for tickets to participate in the parade.
Associations should prioritise individuals who are directly affected by service with the Armed Forces in their contingent.
Military and Civilian men and women from the UK and the Commonwealth that served the Crown on Military Operations.
Wives, husbands, or civil partners of those who died as a result of their service in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces or during a time of war.
Regrettably, the carer accompanying the veteran must be included within the 10k cap; where appropriate, the option of one veteran assisting another for the duration of the Dispersal should be considered.
The key dates for 2020 are as follows:
8 June: All association initial applications to be submitted. Any applications received after the due date will not be accepted.
29 June: RBL to confirm 2020 ticket allocation to each association.
17 August: Deadline for associations to complete individual participant information.

Individual security checks will take place before entry to Horse Guards Parade. Ticket holders are to bring photographic ID and proof of address with them to gain access.
