The March for Honour

Wednesday, November 3, 2010

On the 4th November four teams of serving and ex-serving individuals from each of Her Majesty’s Armed Forces will begin an epic ’March for Honour’.  Starting in four separate locations across the UK, the teams will dedicate and speed-march a mile for every British military life lost on operations in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2001. 

The Royal Marines, Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force teams will march wearing military uniform, each team will march an average of around 30 miles a day and a total distance of up to 250 miles, carrying forty pounds of equipment.

The teams will unite along the route before marching into London on 11th November to deliver the Book of Remembrance to the Royal Albert Hall for The Royal British Legion’s National Festival of Remembrance. Their target is to raise 1 million for The Royal British Legion who work so hard to support the welfare, interests and memories of serving and ex-serving forces, and their families.

Meg commented:

“We owe our armed forces so much and Remembrance Day provides an opportunity to remember and honour the sacrifice many have made. There are varying types of casualties caused by war, death, injury and the pain caused by the loss of family and close friends.

We also have to be aware that for some of the armed forces the effects of combat remain after the fighting has stopped. They need help throughout the year, something organisations like the Royal British Legion provide.”
