The Field of Remembrance was first established in 2013 to commemorate those Devonport men who served and died in World War One. The Field now includes Devonport servicepeople who have died in other conflicts. It is intended as a focal point for the Devonport community and visitors to show respect for the sacrifice of those who lost their lives. The Field is established in Windsor Reserve for ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day each yearand for the other significant events, and each time it remains in place for some days while the community reflects on the price of freedom.
Thank you very much to the Devonport Business Association for lighting up the Field on the evening of 11 November.
