Carterton's Field of Remembrance Service yesterday had an extra touch - a final cross placed for the Unknown Soldier.

Carterton RSA president Rex Kenny and Mayor John Booth placed the cross, bringing the number of crosses in Memorial Park to 106.

Following a minute's silence, bugler Brian Castle played The Last Post.

Carterton School pupils attended, including Rebecca Atkinson, 7, who wore a nurse's red top with lieutenant pips and her great-grandmother's medals.
