PRESS RELEASE : Welsh Conservative Armistice Day statement [November 2022]

The press release issued by the Welsh Conservatives on 11 November 2022.

Commenting, Welsh Conservative leader Andrew RT Davies MS said:

“Today and Sunday, people across our country will gather to pay tribute to all those who served, fought, volunteered, and died to enable future generations to enjoy freedom from tyranny and oppression.

“Despite all the tragedy associated with wars of the past, I am glad that remembrance continues to play such an integral part in our society. After all, today marks the armistice that formally ended the First World War, but here we are commemorating the legacy of those who fought for King and country.

“We not only use this time to reflect on the sacrifice of all those who fought, but those who continue to do so, especially when we see the cost of Russian aggression in Ukraine every day. Beyond them, we also mark the work done on their behalf, by charities like the Royal British Legion and Help for Heroes

“I am thankful and grateful to all those who have fought for our country and for our freedom. We will remember them.”
