Welsh National Field of Remembrance opens in Cardiff

Each November, The Royal British Legion creates Fields of Remembrance to pay tribute to all those who have served in our Armed Forces and who are no longer with us. The Field at Cardiff Castle has over 15,000 crosses and is one of six Fields of Remembrance across the UK this year.

The First Minister, Carwyn Jones, attended the service to pay his respects to military personnel who lost their lives.

The sacrifices made by members of our armed forces in the service of their country must never be forgotten. The formal act of remembrance honours them and their sacrifices, and reminds us of the debt we owe to those who have given up their lives in defence of others

– First Minister Carwyn Jones

A special service to honour the Merchant Navy will be held at the seafarer's memorial in Cardiff on Saturday. Remembrance events will be held around Wales on Sunday 11th November to honour those who died.
