West Ham invite fans to pay tribute this Remembrance Day

West Ham observe a minute's silence at Anfield


West Ham United is inviting supporters to pay tribute to their fellow Hammers fans this Remembrance Day.

So, if you, a family member or friend is a current or former serving member of the Armed Forces, the Club would like to hear from you.

At our Remembrance fixture against Fulham at London Stadium on Saturday 7 November, we’ll be featuring Hammers in the Armed Forces on our big screens, and you can submit your pictures by using the form below.

The Club has a long-held and close relationship with the Armed Forces dating back more than a century, when the 13th Battalion of the Essex Regiment, better known as the West Ham Pals fought during the First World War.

More recently, the Hammers have regularly welcomed members of 7th Battalion The Rifles, based in West Ham, and the Royal British Legion to home matches in recent seasons.

This Saturday’s game will be will be played behind closed doors but the Club will continue to support the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal and hold a minute's silence in memory of those that have fallen, with a bugler playing the Last Post. A wreath will also be laid by both captains before kick-off.
