Remembrance: BSL Tour

Coffin of the Unknown Warrior, 10 November 1920

Join expert guide Edward Richards for a British Sign Language (BSL) tour examining how and why we mark Remembrance Day.

After the First World War, British society had to come to terms with the loss of huge numbers of its service personnel. Across the country, people found ways to commemorate the fallen at a local level. At the same time, national symbols were adopted that soon became the focus of British remembrance.
 
Since then, Remembrance Day has acted as a focal point of reflection as individuals, families and nations come together to honour those who have served and lost their lives in conflict.
 
On this guided tour, Edward Richards will look at how the act of remembrance came about and how things have changed over time.
