Karachi—British Deputy High Commissioner Ms. Belinda Lewis, Defence Adviser Brigadier Murray Whiteside and British Naval and Air Adviser Group Captain John Alexander remembered those who lost their lives in the Great War and all those who have fallen in conflicts since, by laying poppy wreaths during the Remembrance Service at the Karachi War Cemetery.
Organised by the Commonwealth Ex Services Trust, the service was also attended by dignitaries from the Government, Pakistan military, civil society and members of the Diplomatic Corps. The British Deputy High Commissioner hosted a reception after the Remembrance Service at her residence.
During the Service the British Deputy High Commissioner said; “Remembrance Services are not about marking victories, or the celebration of war. Instead, they offer an important opportunity to pause for a moment in our busy lives and remember all those who died in conflict.
Remembrance Services have taken place all around the world today.
