Today we remember those who have given their lives defending our nation. We honour their memory.
“At the going down of the sun, and in the morning we will remember them”
We support The Royal British Legion, Go Commando, Help for Heroes and Combat Stress in the work they do supporting injured servicemen and women. We remember too, the troops on active service in combat zones. 40 Commando Royal Marines, based at Norton Fitzwarren, are currently in Afghanistan. The Rifles, who have a Regimental Chapel in our Church, have now been a part of the regular army for five years and in that time, they have lost 62 men killed in action.
