Field of Remembrance is a “poignant tribute” says South Wales Central AM

South Wales Central AM Andrew RT Davies has urged Vale residents to pay a visit to the Field of Remembrance in Cardiff Castle.

The Field is organised by the Royal British Legion – and is one of 6 located across the UK.

Personal tributes to fallen servicemen and women are written on wooden crosses – that are then placed in the Field.

There are over 120,000 such tributes across the 6 fields.

Mr Davies was present at the opening of the Field on Wednesday November 8th – and it will be open until November 18th.

Mr Davies said, “It was a privilege to be at the opening for this year’s Field of Remembrance – which is a poignant tribute to fallen servicemen and women.

“On Remembrance Sunday – it was pleasing to see so many people come together at the Cenotaph in Cathays Park – as I laid a wreath to commemorate the fallen in conflicts past and present.

“The Field of Remembrance is open in Cardiff Castle until November 18th – so if you have time do go down and see it for yourself.”
