CHURCH of England Bishops are joined other faith leaders, MPs, and former military leaders in backing “Remember Together”, an initiative that says that Remembrance belongs to the entirety of the UK, irrespective of nationality, creed, or colour.

In a joint letter published in The Observer on Sunday, the Bishops of Carlisle and Leicester joined Jewish, Muslim, Sikh, and Hindu leaders in welcoming the initiative from British Future and the Royal British Legion. The letter observed that: “In our often-divided times it is important to pause and reflect on the things that we share. . . We should consider how soldiers from Britain, and its allies from across the Commonwealth nations, the US, and the free armies of Europe fought side by side to overcome adversity.”
