This year – unless there are any last minute changes because of COVID-19 – London’s Field of Remembrance will open today (Thursday 5 November) and remain accessible until Monday 16th.
However, due to work beginning on a new Sacristy at Westminster Abbey and COVID-19 restrictions, there are some changes from previous years. The Sacristy work means a number of remembrance plots have had to be relocated. Luckily, this has not affected the British Salonika Army plot, which remains in its location facing St Margaret’s Church. However, to accommodate necessary relocations, the majority of plots – including ours – are slightly smaller. The Society will be represented at today’s opening of the Field of Remembrance by Chairman, Alan Wakefield, and two members.
