The ceremony was instituted in 1923 following the unveiling of the National Submarine War Memorial in 1922 and is held on the Sunday before the national Remembrance Day Parade.

The Memorial is situated on Victoria Embankment between Blackfriars Bridge and Waterloo Bridge. It depicts a submarine crew, statues of Truth and Justice, 40 anchor-shaped wreath hooks and lists of the submarines lost in both World Wars.

The open air service will be conducted by the Honorary Chaplain to the Submariners Association, the Reverend Paul Jupp, followed by the laying of over 30 wreaths and the salute taken by HRH.

During the moving service a Roll Call of all submarines lost will be read by submariners of several generations.

The Submariners’ Remembrance Service and Parade is held on the Sunday before the national Remembrance Day Parade to enable submariners to attend both.

The Service this year will take place at Middle Temple gardens in London which is adjacent to the Memorial. The Memorial is inaccessible due to extensive road works in the immediate area.
