This year, Harrow is building upon its strong youth involvement, with young cadets playing an active role in Harrow’s Parade & Service, and Harrow pupils have entered a Remembrance Poetry Competition, with three winning poets reciting their poems after the observed silence at 11am.

Join us and wear your poppy with pride to pay tribute to those who gave their lives for your tomorrow.

    No doubt the people of Harrow will turn out in large numbers,and do us proud, as they have done every year but even more so on this special Centenary Remembrance Day.

    We cannot afford to forget those who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we may enjoy the freedoms we have today.Plenty to look forward to.and enjoy —the Parade, Poetry Competition and other events.

    Let us wear our Poppy with Pride and carry the memory of what this signifies, with us forever.We must continue to support the ones they left behind,as a true mark of our respect for all those brave,selfless people.

    God willing,this will be a moving ,memorable occasion ,one which we will all cherish.
