Dear Members and Friends,

It is with pleasure that we, on behalf of the The Danish Royal Guards Association, The Danish Church in London, The Anglo-Danish Society and Danish-UK Association, invite you to the inauguration of the memorial stone for fallen Danes on Sunday 7 May 2023 at 11:00 am.

The ceremony will take place in the church garden at The Danish Church in London, St Katharine’s Precinct, Regent’s Park, NW1 4HH and free to attend for any interested.

We will start with a special memorial service with a procession, and invitees from a wide range of Danish organizations in the UK.

The granite stone with Dannebrog and the inscription

”Til minde om dem der mistede livet i tjeneste for Danmark”

…(“In memory of those who lost their lives in service for Denmark) will be revealed after the memorial service.

The ceremony is in the presence of:

  • Defence Attaché, Brigadier General Jan Kazimierz Toft  
  • Lieutenant Colonel Henrik Schirrmacher from Den Kongelige Livgarde 
  • Brigadegeneral Chris Davies OBE from Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment 

After the ceremony, we invite you to a reception with drinks and snacks in the church garden or church hall, generously provided by Sticks’n’Sushi, Goose Box and Mikkeller in support of these efforts.

Thank to all in the community who help to cater for this event!

Thank you to all the Danes abroad who have supported the project, and made this ceremony possible.

I very much hope to see as many of the members and people from the Danish-UK community there with family and friends as possible for a large turnout and representation around the ceremony.

Kindest regards,

Gunnar P Larsen
Managing Director
Danish-UK Association
