Veterans of the Far East campaign will be present at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffs

The Prince of Wales, accompanied by Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall, will lead the UK in a national moment of remembrance and thanksgiving for all those who served in the Far East.

His Royal Highness will lead a two minute silence at 11am at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire as part of a special televised service on the BBC.

A number of veterans, including Roy 'Doug' Miller, who served in the Royal Navy aboard HMS Indomitable, will be present at the service to pay their respects to their fallen comrades and will represent the surviving veterans of the war in the Far East still alive in the UK today.

Music at the service will be provided by the Central Band of the Royal Air Force.

The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight will take part in a flypast following the two minute silence.
