A Field of Remembrance

A Field of Remembrance

In the Christian religion, and I put my name down as one who believes, there is a poignant, moving verse in New Testament, St.John, 15:13:

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends"  

That testimony is the tribute we pay to all of the brave who were remembered at the Field of Remembrance in Wiltshire, yesterday.

The Wiltshire Times reported memorable coverage of yesterday's Service and Days Events. Their online contribution can be read at the link below:

Poppies and Heroes - get involved......
Each year I run the Poppies and Heroes reminder appeal. Those who lose their lives in service of our country, they are our boys and girls, sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, our family. Where we expect them to protect us, it is a small return of our duty to their families that when their lives are lost we remember, we share and we console so that their mothers and fathers know we stand with them, beside them, in their loss. 

Do not send anything to me, but to know more, to commemorate or to contribute do contact two magnificent organisations 'The Poppy Appeal' and 'Help for Heroes'. Please use the links below:
