Prime Minister this Sunday on remembrance day will lay his first wreath as the cenotaph at 11AM GMT.

Boris Johnson said he will be “proud” to lay his first wreath at the war memorial as prime minister, and vowed to continue to “champion those who serve today with such bravery in our military”.

He said: “On Remembrance Sunday this year I will be thinking of the men and women who, over the centuries, have given so much to protect our country.

“I will especially remember the men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice in war, so that today we can live in peace.”

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said: “We remember the many brave people from Britain and all across the world who put their lives on the line, making huge sacrifices in two world wars which cost the lives of millions, and in all the other conflicts since.”

He added: “For so many of our armed forces, our veterans and their families who have given and still give so much to us, they are not getting the support they deserve.”
