We Will Remember Them

On Remembrance Day, Sherborne observes two minutes’ silence when the Abbey clock strikes eleven.


People come to put crosses for their loved ones in the Field of Remembrance:


And the Sherborne Boys School add their crosses:


We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields…
(John McCrae – In Flanders Fields)
