Reflecting on Remembrance

We will remember them.

This weekend we remember all those who paid the ultimate sacrifice whilst serving our country. 
With Wales having 6 regiments involved in WWI and 7 in WWII, many service personnel gave the ultimate sacrifice and have done so over wars since. During WWI and WWII hospitals played a part in taking care of those who returned wounded and the Royal Gwent Hospital was part of this.

Chaplain, Rev. Dean Aaron Roberts said: “Remembrance events are here so that we can remember the countless soldiers and civilians who endured unimaginable hardship, suffering, and loss during dark chapters of our history.”

“In a hospital, we witness the resilience of the human spirit daily. We see the courage of patients battling illnesses and the dedication of healthcare professionals offering comfort and care. It is here that we find a deep connection to the idea of remembrance, for in our hospitals and healthcare settings, we see the echoes of sacrifice, service, and healing.“
