Former Children’s Laureate, Sir Michael Morpurgo and one of the nation’s best loved illustrators, Michael Foreman, visit the Royal Hospital Chelsea to speak to children from local schools and to the Friends of the Royal Hospital Chelsea.

Join us on Wednesday 10th October, for a concert dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War. 

On the 1st of September the Chelsea Pensioners, in partnership with The Reserve Forces' and Cadets' Association for Greater London, proudly led a military Parade down the King’s Road to commemorate Londoners who contributed to the war effort in World War One.

Every 11th November the United Kingdom falls silent in remembrance of those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in service to the Nation. Below, four Chelsea Pensioners give their thoughts about Armistice Day, and why remembering those who have come before us is important to them
