The Chelsea Pensioners will be travelling across the world again this year to support Remembrance events and to commemorate the centenary of the First World War Armistice. The Pensioners attend a variety of events including marching at the Cenotaph and attending the Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall. For a look at the some of the places the Pensioners will visit during the Remembrance commemorations, click on the Remembrance map option below.

At one of the busiest times of the year for the Royal Hospital Chelsea, the Chelsea Pensioners also volunteer to help raise funds for the Royal British Legion, by selling poppies, in remembrance of their fallen comrades.
