Poppies laid in dedication ceremony
Ahead of Remembrance Sunday, the annual Dedication of the Field of Remembrance ceremony took place outside Bath Abbey. War veterans, armed forces personnel and church leaders came together to remember those who lost their lives. They took it in turns to lay small wooden crosses and poppies in the cross-shaped patch of lawn at the Abbey Church Yard. Several visitors and local people stopped to watch and listen to prayers for those who had died and those still fighting in war zones across the world at the dedication on Sunday organised by the Royal British Legion Bath. Larry Coles from Bath Spa Band played the Last Post, followed by a two-minute silence, and a wreath of poppies was laid at the head of the memorial by Major Roger Evans from the Royal British Legion. Mayor of Bath Councillor Patrick Anketell-jones, along with representatives from the Royal British Legion, other organisations and the church, were all in attendance. The Salvation Army band provided the music during the service.
