War Widows’ Service of Remembrance

The War Widows’ Association of Great Britain held their Annual Service of Remembrance and Wreath Laying, at the Cenotaph, Whitehall, London, at 12.30 p.m.









Their wreath consisted of a cross of white chrysanthemums, on which was superimposed a spray of red poppies. It is said that the white chrysanthemum was chosen as the Association’s symbol simply because it was easily available in November.
