If you would like to receive your badge before Armistice Day (11th November) you need to register/update your profile by 11th October. Badges will be sent out in batches and we hope that all recruits will have them in time to wear when the ring on Armistice Day.
If you sign up after 11th October (or haven’t by then updated your profile), you will still receive a badge, but we cannot guarantee you will receive it in time for Armistice Day.

When is the cut off for the Ringing Remembers campaign?
The cut off for being counted as part of Ringing Remembers is November 11 – after that day we will no longer register recruits for the campaign.
What are the Ringing Remembers badges?
These special badges are for Ringing Remembers recruits to recognise their participation as learners in the Ringing Remembers campaign, which has sought to recruit new bell ringers to commemorate the 1,400 that died in WW1. Ringing Remembers recruits will ring on Armistice Day alongside existing ringers across the country.
Can all bell ringers who ring for the Armistice Centenary have Ringing Remembers badges?
Towers will be able to receive special certificates for ringing at 12.30pm on November 11 to recognise their contribution to the UK Government’s national WW1 centenary commemorations. More details for these certificates will be announced shortly.
