Today many people braved the rain to gather inside Cardiff Castle, to mark the opening of the Fields of Remembrance. The field which has been set up to commemorate Remembrance Sunday and Remembrance Day will be open for the public to pay their respects, to those who lost their lives in the first and second World War as well as many other conflicts.
One of the people that was there to pay her respects in Uniform was Lieutenant Kernel Angela Briggs of the 157 Welsh Regiment RLC. She “Events like this are a time to reflect and remember those who have gone before us and those who paid the ultimate sacrifice. Me personally I have served in quite a few conflicts and it’s a chance for me to remember those who didn’t come back.
Cardiff’s Honorary Chaplin Reverend Canon Stewart Lisk, led the general public and special guests including First Minister Mark Drakeford in prayers said in both Welsh and English. The fields are opened from November 3rd to November 17th.
