Royal Mail Statement

A Royal Mail spokesperson called me today further to my email this week concerning the allegations that they had, as a company, decided to shun the cost of providing a Remembrance Day wreath in Brentwood. They deny they allegations profusely.


Here is the statement in full..

“There is absolutely no truth in the suggestion that Royal Mail Headquarters stopped the budget for Remembrance Day wreaths. Royal Mail regards Remembrance Day as a key opportunity to show its full respect to the servicemen and women who lost their lives in the service of their country and we take part in Remembrance Day ceremonies around the country.


Unfortunately, an administrative oversight in Brentwood meant that a cheque to pay for a wreath was not arranged but this is being fully resolved.


As part of Royal Mail’s continuing support for the Armed Services, and all those who have and continue to serve in the forces, Royal Mail, in October issued a set of commemorative stamp sheets from which all profits are donated to the National Memorial Arboretum to ensure the Arboretum remains a year round living and lasting centre of Remembrance.”
