More than 60 wreaths are expected to be laid at the Cenotaph in the first Remembrance Day ceremony run by the community tomorrow. This year's organiser, the Hong Kong Ex-Servicemen's Association, wants people to start gathering at the memorial in Central from about 10.30 am. The association has taken over from the British military. While elements such as two minutes' silence starting at 11 am will remain, more local touches will be seen, including wreaths of white flowers, the Chinese symbol of mourning. The association's honorary chairman Jack Edwards said: 'Let's get the community out to show support for the men and women who died in the defence of Hong Kong, and also in World War I when there were 200,000 Chinese in France. We left 3,000 of them behind.'
