The National Service of Remembrance was held at the Cenotaph on Whitehall, London. Starting at 11am, the service commemorated the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women involved in the two World Wars and later conflicts. Among them were three veterans from undivided India-  Mr Muhammed Hussein, Mr Rujinder Singh Dhatt and Mr Preetum Singh Phugura.

BRAVE SARDAR: Despite having had a bad knee and ankle, Mr Rujinder Singh Dhatt was determined to walk in remembrance of all those who have given their lives to protect the UK in the past and present conflicts, and so declined the offer of a wheelchair. 
Each veteran was escorted by a current serving member of the Armed Forces; Surgeon Lieutenant Commander Manish Tayal, Engineer Major Sartaj Gogna and defence specialist Corporal Dhalai.
