Calling All Brits... March For Honour 11.11.2013... Please Share


The British expatriate community has very strong ties with our honourable hosts in the esteemed State of Kuwait, and this has prompted me to galvanise said ties by running the March For Honour® 2013 event in Kuwait. I have the honour to inform you that The Prime Minister, His Highness Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah has agreed to be the representative Kuwaiti patron and that Her Majesty's British Ambassador to Kuwait, His Excellency Frank Baker OBE, has agreed to be the representative British patron for the event.

LWDLIK - Makes me very proud indeed. Just getting more details like what time - because I need to get out there with my flag and cheer them on.

Seems they will finish at 11AM at the British Embassy, Arabian Gulf Street, Dasman. Where Rememberance Day will be observed.

Remembrance Day is observed on 11 November to recall the end of hostilities of World War I on that date in 1918. Hostilities formally ended "at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month," in accordance with the Armistice, signed by representatives of Germany and the Entente between 5:12 and 5:20 that morning.

Rememberance Day is also called Poppy Day. The red remembrance poppy has become a familiar emblem of Remembrance Day due to the poem "In Flanders Fields". These poppies bloomed across some of the worst battlefields of Flanders in World War I, their brilliant red colour an appropriate symbol for the blood spilled in the war.
