On Sunday 24th September the Annual Memorial Service at Le Foulon Cemetery will take place to remember the 500+ seamen who lost their lives 80 years ago, in October 1943, when the two ships, HMS Charybdis and HMS Limbourne were sunk in the waters between France and the Channel Islands, with 21 bodies washed up on Guernsey beaches. As it is 80 years since this terrible tragedy occurred and only a few survivors are left to share their stories, it is hoped many islanders this year will go to Le Foulon to remember the fallen and to pray for peace and an end to worldwide conflicts.
The Service at Le Foulon commences at 3:00pm, however people are asked to be there by 2:45pm before HE The Lieutenant-Governor and other invited dignitaries arrive in a procession from The Ladies College. Revd Mark Charmley will lead the Service. Deacon Mark will be taking part in the service and representing the Catholic Church. Parking is available at The Ladies College and limited parking in Le Foulon Road.
