Elaborate preparations in UK to mark Armistice Day centenary

SeattlePI.com Thursday, 8 November 2018 ()
LONDON (AP) — Elaborate preparations are underway in Britain ahead of ceremonies to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. Armistice Day will be commemorated Sunday in Britain with a solemn ceremony at the Cenotaph in London that will be attended by Queen Elizabeth II and other senior royals. Special tributes to fallen and injured servicemen will also include a Field of Remembrance at Westminster Abbey. The field is being filled with small crosses, often topped with photographs of a serviceman who died in the 1914-1918 war. A separate display at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London will feature 72,396 individually shaped, shrouded figures.
