Uxbridge and South Ruislip MP, Boris Johnson laid a wreath on Saturday 7th November as the country prepared to mark Remembrance Sunday differently this year. Boris paid his respects at Uxbridge War Memorial at a low-key event alongside Ian Ritchie from the Hillingdon and District Branch of The Royal British Legion.
With social distancing restrictions in place across the UK and a full lockdown in England, the Government has encouraged councils to ensure remembrance services are short, entirely outdoors and held in front of limited numbers.
Several other wreaths are being laid on Boris’s behalf across the constituency over the Remembrance Weekend.
Boris Johnson commenting said: "I was honoured to have the opportunity to lay a wreath at the Uxbridge War Memorial in my role as the local MP to commemorate the British and Commonwealth military and civilian service men and women who have served their country in the two World Wars and later conflicts. This is an extraordinary year, but nothing should prevent us from pausing to give thanks to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country".
