Americans in London give thanks at St Paul's

The 'unbreakable bond' between the USA and the UK has been highlighted at the annual service to mark US Thanksgiving in St Paul's.

The service (November 22) was preached by the Reverend John D'Elia and the US Ambassador to the UK, Louis Susman, delivered an address.

He said: "Here in London, we recognize America’s solid partnership with the United Kingdom and the British people. There is no more powerful example of it than this annual Thanksgiving Service at St Paul’s. That such an acclaimed British institution hosts a distinctly American holiday is testimony to the depth of our special relationship. Indeed, this Cathedral is itself a great symbol of the unbreakable bonds that unite our two nations."

The service was sung by the American Church Choir and a Colour Guard was provided by the US Marine Corps.
