Remembrance Day was a holiday in France but not officially recognised in Monaco. However, banks and the postal service were closed in the Principality November 11.

If you need medical attention this weekend, from November 11 to 13, Dr Rouge is on call on +377 93 50 20 33, while the “pharmacie de garde” is Pharmacie Medecin at 19 blvd Albert 1er (+377 93 30 17 06).

A reminder that 116 117 is the new toll free number for doctors and pharmacies in Monaco on nights, weekends and holidays

The annual Remembrance Day service will take place on Sunday, November 13, at 10:30 at St Paul’s Church Monaco, preceded by a procession along avenue Grande Bretagne to Place Winston Churchill. There will be a short ceremony in front of the British statesman Sir Winston Churchill, and an address by Michael Healy MBE, President of the Monaco-Nice Branch of the Royal British Legion.

A wreath will be laid by the President of the British Association of Monaco and Father Walter Raymond will lead prayers. The procession will then return to St Paul’s for the Remembrance Service, to include the Act of Remembrance with the trumpet playing the Last Post and Reveille, including the traditional two minutes of silence for the fallen.

Commander Healy reminds readers that the annual Poppy Appeal to raise funds for the care of wounded British and Commonwealth military – and their widows and orphans – is underway with Poppy Kits distributed throughout Monaco. “Our local Poppy Appeal target is a modest €14,500, towards a global target of €47 million, says Commander Healy. “We will continue to wear these red poppies until Remembrance Sunday on November 13h in the Anglican churches in the region.”
