Many current and former servicemen and women marched from the Royal British Legion Club to the park where they were read verses by the padre before the Last Post was played.
Wreaths were laid to remember those who lost their lives during the battle during a 25-minute service.
The service was introduced with then prime minister Winston Churchill's historic "Never in the field of human conflict" speech.
Tony Jolley, who was at the service, said: "It went very well despite a bad bit of weather."
