St John Ambulance celebrates Remembrance Day

London, England, 11. November 2018

Over the weekend of 10-11 November, St John Ambulance England and The Islands supported Remembrance events and parades across the country to mark the centenary of the Armistice that ended the First World War. For the very first time, a selection of ambulances was ‘wrapped’ in poppies to show that SJA people were ‘volunteering with thanks’.

Below you can have a look at some of the events that our English JOIN member attended.

Here is a plot at the Field of Remembrance, in honour of all the SJA men and women who gave their lives in the service of humanity.

Volunteers from the East region provided first aid cover and SJA poppy ambulance made a special appearance in Sittingbourne during the local Remembrance parade.

Volunteers from London & South were honoured to support and lay the SJA wreath at the Haslemere War Memorial.

Not only did SJA medical response team work together to keep everyone safe at the Remembrance Service, some of the volunteers also took part in the Royal Horseguards Parade at the Cenotaph on Whitehall.

Volunteers from London & South took part in the 2-minute silence to honour the memory of all those who died.
