The first image, below, shows the Cross of Sacrifice after its recent cleaning by the Victoria Cross Trust and displaying the poppy wreath, which we placed for this year’s Remembrance Sunday.
Sadly, in the days leading up to Remembrance Sunday, a person or persons unknown had lit a very large number of tea-lights on the base of the cross. Candle wax had overflowed from many of them, marking the surface of the stonework. We urge people not to do this. It is both disrespectful and very unsightly. The images below show how we found the cross last Saturday, before cleaning it off as best we could.
