Field of Remembrance opens at Cardiff Castle

Cardiff Castles’ field of remembrance opened this morning and will be open from 9am-5pm until the 17th of November.

hundreds gathered for the annual event to pay their respects and lay down poppies for those who fell during combat.

Veterans, the public and the Royal British Legion all paid their respects and watched as the tributes were laid, a variety of songs from the Royal Welsh Fusiliers as well as the Welsh and British national anthem.

followed by the tributes were a two minutes silence and the sound of a trumpet playing “the last post”

Mark Drakeford, the first minister of Wales, also made an appearance and paid his respects along with a delicate speech in front of a large crowd.

each year over 12,000 tributes are planted by the Royal British Legion across six national fields
