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)
