Sark remembered the 19 Sark men who gave their lives in the two World Wars with a service at St Peter’s Church on Sunday 10th November. The ceremony began with a procession of Sark members of the Royal British Legion bearing the Sark and Legion standards to the War Memorial. At the stroke of eleven the standards were lowered and trumpet player Ash Jarman sounded the Last Post before a minute’s silence. The names of those on the memorial were then read out and wreathes were laid before the service, led by the Rev Neil Britton, continued inside the church. The following day Reg Guille led a short Remembrance ceremony in the church for Sark School Children who observed a minute of silence before going outside to plant crosses around the War Memorial. Each cross bore a poppy and the name of one of the Sark men who gave their lives for their country.
