#HonourOurWounded Raises Awareness Of Injured Service Personnel

Law Firm Remembers Those Injured On Duty

10.11.2014

Remembrance Day acts as an important annual reminder of those brave service people who have risked their lives while serving our country.

At 11 am on November 11th, people across the country will stop for two minutes to remember those who lost their lives in the First World War in particular. This year, we want to help raise awareness of those who have been wounded while serving in all of the conflicts since 1914.

In support of the Royal British LegionThroughout the day on the Irwin Mitchell Twitter account, we will be sharing the images featured below, accompanied by #HonourOurWounded.

Working with wounded service people on a daily basis, we know the long-lasting affects an injury incurred in the line of duty can have on all those close to the injured party. As such, we ask that you help us to raise awareness of all those injured by sharing the imagery we will be posting throughout the day.

We have also made a corporate donation to the Royal British Legion – you can also donate here.
