Chris Stuart presents highlights from this year's annual Royal British Legion Festival of Remembrance, in the year when the UK bid farewell to its last First World War veteran Harry Patch and marks the 70th anniversary of the beginning of the Second World War.

This is a time when the nation once again offers its thanks and pays tribute to all those who risk their lives in the service of their country.

We remember the great sacrifice made by all who have died as a result of conflict and the pain and suffering of those left behind, especially in the act of Remembrance when thousands of poppies are dropped representing the lives lost not only in the two great World Wars, but also in more recent conflicts.

As well as the annual displays of rousing military band music from, amongst others, The Royal Marines and RAF, the evening features male vocal group The Soldiers, all three of whom are on active service in Her Majesty's forces and who release their first album at the end of October.

Other voices include Jamie Cullum, Faryl Smith and Hayley Westenra.

Joined by the Fron Male Voice Choir, Hayley will be singing that much loved favourite of another Forces' Sweetheart, We'll meet again.
