About the lecture:
On 11th November 1920, a grand ceremony took place in Whitehall with the triple objective of unveiling The Cenotaph, honouring the body of the Unknown Warrior on its journey to Westminster Abbey, and establishing a format for an annual commemoration of those British & Empire servicemen and women who had been killed in the First World War. In this illustrated talk, Christopher Joll shines a light on the now long-forgotten reasons for, and the events that led to, the building of the Cenotaph, the establishment of the grave of the Unknown Warrior and the annual Remembrance Day Parade.
