King George V arriving at Westminster Abbey for the burial of the unknown soldier, the unknown British warrior who represents all the Fallen of World War One, 11 November 1920. On the second anniversary of the armistice, the Unknown Warrior was drawn in procession to the Cenotaph. This national war memorial on Whitehall was then unveiled by His Majesty. At 11.00am there was a two minutes silence and the body was subsequently taken to Westminster Abbey for burial. Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother laid her wedding bouquet on the grave at her marriage service in 1923, a tradition followed by Princess Elizabeth who sent her bouquet to be laid on the grave the day after her wedding in 1947.
