The Admiral Duncan – 12th Anniversary Memorial Service

A Memorial Service attended by the Lord Mayor of Westminster, Locum Tenens, took place in the gardens of St Anne’s Church recently to mark the 12th Anniversary of the bomb which exploded in the Admiral Duncan bringing death and injury to Soho.

The nail bomb was part of a campaign of hatred against minority communities undertaken by a misguided individual who was subsequently caught and convicted.

The service celebrated the lives of those who had died and been affected by the explosion and focused on the need for remembrance and forgiveness. Although Soho is generally a very tolerant place the service emphasised the need for vigilance to ensure that the hard fought rights of minority communities are not compromised by extremism or the re-emergence of intolerance.
