Christ Church and RMA
Christ Church has enjoyed a long association with the Royal Marines Association, since 48 Commando Royal Marines left from Christ Church for the D-Day landings.
The Chapel to the right of the altar is known as the ‘Warrior Chapel’ and has a number of items marking the church’s association with the Marines.
Members of the local association, and veterans of 48 Commando, participate in the service on Remembrance Sunday.
A more recent link with the Royal Marines in the Warrior Chapel is the memorial to Jason , a young Marine killed in Afghanistan in 2009.
