We Will Remember Them - United Artists
On 1 November 2009 a cast of 200 filled Abbey Road studios in their biggest ever recording session - recording their tribute to the British armed forces, past and present, "We Will Remember Them". Released for download on 8 November, the CD is available from 7 December, with two bonus tracks and a DVD containing an extended version of the video that is currently viewable online.
The recording is being sold to raise funds for Help For Heroes and the Royal British Legion - to give hope and help to troops whose lives have been blown apart by devastating injuries and the families of those who have given their lives serving their country.
