「 陣亡將士紀念星期天 」今年在2014.11.9 。

這天和平紀念碑掛上了香港區旗、中國國旗、前軍人組織旗。碑外圍欄也解開,讓市民可以走近。

回歸後,這個英聯邦的紀念日子沒有了官方的地位。猶幸,儀式最重要是那份向一戰和二戰英雄致敬的心意還得以繼續。

今年多加一份意思,2014年是第一次世界大戰的一百週年。

remembrance sunday was on yesterday, 9nov14.

the monument was opened to the public after ceremony was observed earlier the day. hong kong flag, china national flag and the ex-servicemen’s flag were hoisted. poppy wreaths are laid around.

in addition to sending our respect to those who sacrificed in wwi and wwii, this year also marked the 100th anniversary of the world war i.
