THE memory of each soldier who fought for their country will live on in children.

Pupils at Ysgol Yr Esgob came together at Caerwys Memorial Institute on November 17 to remember the fallen heroes of the community.

Around 20 soldiers from this small town paid the ultimate sacrifice during the Boer War and the two Great Wars.

A spokesman said: "We may not have known them, sadly they have gone, but the memory of each soldier should always live on.

"KS2 pupils wanted to mark this year's Remembrance service differently due to current times. Many had heard the Royal British Legion's saying of 'Every Poppy Counts' and to reflect this poppies were painted on to rocks.

"Each rock represents a life bravely given in battle. On the reverse of 20 are the names of Caewrys’s own Fallen Heroes.

"The outdoor service was led by Headteacher Mrs Clisham and attended by Deputy Town Major Stephen Wilson and Secretary of Caerwys Memorial Institute Kris Chambers.

"They gave their tomorrow, for our today, lest we forget."
