The Annual service of Remembrance will take place at the War Memorial, Litten Gardens on Remembrance Sunday 14th November, commencing at 1100am.

Uniformed, and other participants will assemble in East Street and march to the War Memorial around 1030, led by the ATC Band of 461 Squadron.

The Mayor, Councillor John Hughes, and other civic dignitaries will lay wreaths together with other representatives from the ex-service and wider community.

The Garrison Artillery Volunteers will be located in the adjacent New Park Road Recreation Ground and will be firing their World War one 18pounder gun to mark the commencement and completion of the Two Minutes’ Silence.

This year, we see the 100th anniversary of the unveiling of the War Memorial which used to be located in Eastgate Square and was moved to the present location in 1940. The War Memorial, owned and maintained the City Council, is now a Grade II Listed structure.

We will also be commemorating the centenary of the foundation of the Royal British Legion and especially the Chichester Branch.

At the conclusion of the service the various contingents will march past the saluting base in Eastgate Square and form up again in East Steet before being dismissed.

Music for the service is being provided by the Chichester City Band and the service traditionally ends by the singing of ‘Sussex by the Sea’
