Dedicate a Remembrance Tribute in a Field of Remembrance

Wootton-Bassett-Field-of-Remembrance-2011.jpgThe first Field of Remembrance was held in the grounds of Westminster Abbey in November 1928. That year only two Remembrance Tribute Crosses were planted. But it began a tradition that took root and has grown and grown over the decades.

Each Remembrance Tribute carries a personal message to someone who lost his or her life in the Service of our country.

Amanda Binnie plants a Cross in memory of her husband Sean who died while serving in Afghanistan. She finds the rituals of Remembrance are part of the healing process.

They bring home how many people have lost their lives and how important it is that we never forget what they have done for this country.

A photo gallery of Remembrance is available here.

Fields of Remembrance 2014

Royal-Wootton-Bassett.jpgAs well as the traditional Field of Remembrance at Westminster, there are five additional fields around the country.

Each is testament to the respect and gratitude felt by so many.

Once again this Remembrance Day, thousands of Remembrance Tributes will stand proudly in our Fields of Remembrance across the UK. So if you haven't already done so, now is the time to ensure yours joins our salute to our nation's fallen heroes. Each Cross is planted as a tribute to our brave Service men and women. And as the number lost in today's conflicts grows, so too does the number of injured Service men and women and their dependents who rely on The Royal British Legion.

You too can mark the memory of loved ones, friends or comrades by dedicating your own Remembrance Tribute to a life remembered.

Please note that the 2014 Fields have now closed to new dedications, but watch this space for further information in the new year.
