Northern Ireland Veterans’ Association
Service of Remembrance
National Memorial Arboretum
Saturday 9th September 2023
This years’ service will be held at 11.30am on Saturday 9th September 2023 at the National Memorial Arboretum, Alrewas, Staffordshire.
The service will commemorate and remember all those who lost their lives in service of the Crown as a result of the conflict in N. Ireland.
The chapel service will be followed by a parade down to the Ulster Ash Grove for the laying of wreathes.
Following the laying of the wreathes, there will be a 15-minute pause before the parade forms up for the return march to the visitor centre during which the our Patron, General Sir Roger Neil Wheeler GCB CBE will take the salute accompanied by other guests of honour.
The service is open to all and all Associations are welcome to parade their standards. It would be appreciated if Associations arranging for groups of their members to attend could notify us of numbers and confirm if their standard will be parading.
We look forward to welcoming you to our annual memorial service.
NIVA Membership Secretary.
