British High Commission Islamabad marks Remembrance Day

The service paid tribute to all those from the United Kingdom, other Commonwealth countries and elsewhere who lost their lives during conflicts from World War I to the present day.

A Remembrance Day service was marked by the British High Commission in Islamabad

A Remembrance Day service was marked by the British High Commission in Islamabad today to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War and to commemorate those who sacrificed their lives in that conflict.

The commemoration was attended by representatives of the Pakistani armed forces, Commonwealth High Commissions, EU member states and other friends and allies.

Thomas Drew CMG, British High Commissioner to Pakistan, said:

It is a privilege to be able to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I with this ceremony today. This is an important moment to remember those who laid down their lives in conflicts over the years. It is our duty to remember all those who fought to secure our future. Celebrating Armistice Day in Pakistan, we remembered too the many soldiers from this part of the world who fought in the two World Wars, as well as the many sacrifices of recent years.

It is indeed a part of the world where current day conflicts are very real. As we remember the fallen, I hope that we can also think of those who continue to serve – to protect us, our values and future generations.
