Remembrance Day in Thailand: Sunday 8 November 2020

The annual Remembrance Day Service organised by the British Embassy in Bangkok will be held at The British Club commencing at 1050hrs on Sunday 08th November. The event will not only commemorate British, Commonwealth, and allied personnel, but all those who have been affected in all conflicts. It serves as a reminder that nations who fought so bitterly against each other can come together to promote peace and stability in the modern world.

Wreaths will be laid at the War Memorial by Ambassadors or their representatives, by War Veterans’ organisations and by representatives from associations and societies in Bangkok. Those attending the service on 08th November are asked to gather from 1020hrs. I would be grateful if you could reply to remembrance.bangkok@fcdo.gov.uk if you would like to attend and complete the attached response form. If you wish to lay a wreath, they are available from the British Embassy for a donation of 1500 THB each. Please indicate on your response form if you require one. All funds raised will go to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal.

If you are unable to attend in person, you may wish to consider sending a representative. We are able to offer 4 official seats per party, and others who are interested to attend are most welcome to do so. I would ask that they e-mail separately and attend in a private capacity. Parking is very limited and will only be available for pre-registered VIPs but general parking will be available at the Narai Hotel. VIP Address The British Club, 189 Suriwongse Road, Bangrak. Public Address The British Club, Silom Road Soi 18, Bangrak.

On arrival everyone will be temperature checked and pass through the security check process. Due to current regulations, it is mandatory for all guests to wear facemasks. To ensure access, please register your attendance in advance as there will be a maximum capacity permitted on the day. Following the service, light refreshments will be served on the back lawn.
