Armistice Sunday Service for Animals
Posted 5 November 2008
Animals' War Memorial adjacent to Hyde Park, off Park Lane, London br> 09/11/2008 10:30
As well as the tragic loss of countless human lives in wars, it is often forgotten that millions of animals have also died on the battlefield and in experiments to develop yet more ways to kill people. Therefore, as well as the ceremonies to remember people at the Cenotaph in Whitehall and at other war memorials throughout the UK, there is a ceremony to remember animals on this Sunday (November 9) at 10.30 a.m. at the Animals’ War Memorial adjacent to Hyde Park, off Park Lane and just about opposite to the Dorchester Hotel.
The Reverend Pastor James Thompson - known to many down the years as ‘The Animals' Padre’ - hopes to come down from North Wales to officiate. All are welcome at this short and dignified service of remembrance. An opportunity to lay posies and wreaths will follow the 2 minutes silence.
