Remember the fallen in the Field of Remembrance

Today is Remembrance Sunday, so your author thought it fitting to feature the Field of Remembrance outside Westminster Abbey. Every November, The Royal British Legion establishes a Field of Remembrance outside the Abbey, to remember the fallen.

A sea of Remembrance Crosses with poppies on them are placed as tributes to ex-Service men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect their country. Families and friends place crosses to remember loved ones, friends and comrades who are no longer with us.

It is a poignant reminder of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. This year, it was officially opened by the HRH the Duke of Edinburgh on the 11th November at 11am, and is open daily from 9am to 4pm from 11th November until 21st November.
