Cenotaph Parade and Service 2023

The Royal British Legion is planning to hold the Ex-Service and Civilian Contingents attending the Parade and Service at the Cenotaph, Whitehall, on Remembrance Sunday, 12th November 2023.

NARPO has applied The Royal British Legion to send a contingent of Forty-Four (44) members, to take part in this unique national event, in the heart of London. However, we cannot guarantee we will receive all our requested number of places.

Due to heightened security measures the Metropolitan Police need to conduct individual security checks on all participants. Therefore, basic personal information will need to be provided in advance for each applicant.

Ticket holders will need to bring both photographic ID and a document showing proof of address with them for access to Horse Guards Parade via the staffed Police entry points on the day.

Applications to take part in the Parade and Service are now being taken from NARPO Branches.

Please note that nominations from Branches must be NARPO Members.

It should be noted that those attending will be required to provide some personal information, for security reasons and tickets will be issued in the Member’s name, therefore last-minute replacements will not be possible.

Attendees will be required to assemble no later than 10.00am in Whitehall and be aware of the physical demands of standing in Whitehall for at least 1½ hours and then marching for at least 1½ miles, possibly in inclement weather and of tight security measures on the day.

If anyone is interested in applying for nomination, please contact our Branch Secretary, as soon as possible, when further details will be made available.
