Hammers to mark Remembrance Day at Liverpool game

West Ham United will mark Remembrance Day around Saturday's Premier League match against Liverpool. 

Fans can view a Second World War Spitfire plane on display outside London Stadium and make donations to the Royal British Legion poppy sellers. 

Before the game, there will be a performance from the Royal Air Force Air Cadets Band and Sir Trevor Brooking will read John McCrae’s poem In Flanders Fields, before a Guard of Honour is formed by members of the Royal British Legion and servicemen from the G Company 7 RIFLES West Ham Army Reserve Centre. 

Joint-Chairman David Gold, Liverpool CEO Peter Moore, Mayor of Newham Sir Robin Wales and West Ham fan Matt Woollard will lay wreaths in the centre circle. 

A minute's silence will be held, the Last Post will be played by a bugler, while supporters in the East Stand will be invited to create a special Remembrance mosaic, honouring those who bravely laid down their lives for us.
