‘We will remember them’

Susie and Jamie Sheldon pay their respects

A Field of Remembrance has once again been opened to the public at Carisbrooke Castle this month, to commemorate those in the uniformed services who lost their lives in service to their country.

The field was introduced in the Princess Beatrice Garden at Carisbrooke Castle in 2010; however it has now been moved to the Governess Lawn which is next to the Princess Beatrice Garden.

It was established by the then Isle of Wight Lord-Lieutenant, Maj Gen Sir Martin White, as a place where residents can pay their respects around the time of Remembrance Sunday.

A Service of Remembrance took place at the castle yesterday (Thursday), led by Lord-Lieutenant Susie Sheldon, with members of the public in attendance. Donations were made to the Royal British Legion.
