Remembrance Day, The Hague, 8 November 2020:
No public gathering this year
It is with regret that we have to advise that the normal Remembrance Day Service on 8 November is not possible this year because of restrictions relating to the COVID-19 crisis. As Australia is host this year we are disappointed to have to send this message.
We will still mark the day by having a small service of a very limited number of diplomatic representatives, and representatives of the armed forces and service organisations. However it is sadly not possible to have our normal guests or members of the public attend this year.
We will livestream the Remembrance Day Service and wreath laying on our Embassy Facebook page should you wish to view the ceremony.
Should you or your organisation wish to send a wreath to be laid on your behalf, we would be happy to do so.
We also look forward to returning next year in full force with our normal Remembrance Day Service to which you will all be invited. Regardless of the current circumstances, we know that wherever we are, we will be together in spirit and we shall remember them.
