Daniel Mays took part in the 2019 Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance held at Royal Albert Hall on Saturday, 9 November.
2019 marks 75 years since 1944, a pivotal year in the Allied fight for freedom in the Second World War. There will be unique tributes to mark the 75th anniversary of the battles of Monte Cassino, Kohima, Imphal and D-Day culminating in a parade of some of the last surviving veterans who fought and served in 1944.
Throughout the event we’ll remember the bond of friendship and collaboration that exists between Britain, the Commonwealth and her allies. As the petals fall in the Royal Albert Hall, the festival will pay tribute to all victims of war and remember those that made the ultimate sacrifice.
An honour and privilege to read the ‘Red Poppies at Monte Cassino’ this evening @BBCOne #FestivalofRemembrance for @PoppyLegion @RoyalAlbertHall. A moving ceremony of emotion and reflection that will live long in my memory. Thank you ❤️#LestWeForget https://t.co/nwqu6mfVVw
