Sir Robin said: “Remembrance Sunday is a day to reflect on the thousands of men and women who put their lives at risk to fight for their country and died for the freedom of others.
“We remember those from generations past as well as those who continue to fall in conflicts and wars. We must never forget what they have done for us.”
