Westminster Abbey, 10th November 2016
Philippa D'Eath, daughter of
Tpr J D'Eath (KIA, Weeze)
The Regiment was represented at the Annual Field of Remembrance organised by the Royal British Legion at Westminster Abbey. Prince Philip and Prince Harry officiated and Philippa D’Eath, whose father was killed at Weeze, was our representative at the head of the plot. Capt Render represented the Derbyshire Yeomanry with whom he served after the War. My thanks to all who came and to Capt Nick Robinson for placing the crosses.
This year the ceremony will be held on Thursday 9th November. For security reasons, tickets are required. So, if you would like to attend, please let me know by the beginning of September.
