First Minister honours Forces’ sacrifice on Remembrance Sunday

The First Minister of Wales, Carwyn Jones has honoured those who lost their lives in war on Remembrance Sunday.
Sunday 11 November 2012

The First Minister attended the National Service of Remembrance for Wales in Alexandra Gardens, Cardiff where he laid a wreath at the Cenotaph to remember those who fell.

Carwyn Jones said:

"On Remembrance Sunday, we reflect on and remember those who served and sacrificed so much to allow us to live our lives in the freedom we enjoy today.

"The National Service of Remembrance is a poignant occasion and one that will be replicated at memorials across Wales, reflecting the scale of the wars that were fought in the 20th century.

"Whilst we are fortunate to live in more peaceful times, we must also remember the servicemen and women on active service overseas today and the dangers they face.

"The demands placed on those personnel and their families are considerable and we should be mindful of that and offer what support we can as we remember and honour the sacrifices they make."
