Sunday 11 November – Remembrance Day Service and Parade

The Remembrance Day Parade will be held in the grounds of the magnificent Portsmouth Guildhall with many veterans, and bands including the world famous Royal Marines Band. Portsmouth Guildhall is just a ten minute walk, or a very short taxi ride, from the Royal Maritime Club. This event is open to all, and would be a wonderful finish to the weekend in Portsmouth for those wishing to take part.  A limited number of Nelson Society members can join an accompanied brisk walk and a VIP place at the Guildhall, so please let Jeanette know in advance if you wish to join our Guide.
