Here in the UK our Memorial Day is on a different day later in the year: Remembrance Sunday on the second Sunday in November, which is the Sunday nearest to 11 November Armistice Day. It is the anniversary of the end of hostilities in the First World War at 11 a.m. in 1918.
The major parade is held at the Cenotaph in London, but there are also hundreds of others all over the country. I do usually go each year and it is incredibly moving, and it's nice to see not just the old soldiers there, but also associations like the Scouts, Guides, St Johns Ambulance and so on. Below, if I've managed to embed it correctly, is the last post from last year's parade that was played in the garden of remembrance.
