Ordinarily, Chelsea Pensioners get involved with a host of remembrance events across the UK and overseas. The Remembrance period is one of the busiest times of the year for the Royal Hospital, with the Chelsea Pensioners usually travelling all over the world, as well as volunteering to help raise funds for the Royal British Legion, by selling poppies, in remembrance of their fallen comrades. Sadly this year will be very different due to the ongoing pandemic and so commemorations will be scaled back.
