Lowestoft marks Remembrance Day
Up to 1,000 people gathered in the bright sunshine in Lowestoft today to remember service men and woman who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
A Remembrance Day service was held on Royal Plain on the sea front with a large crowd packing the area which was bathed in bright sunshine.
Before the Remembrance service a parade was held through the town from the town hall with local army and sea cadets proudly marching through Lowestoft as shoppers and traders paused to watch them pass.
The Royal Plain service was held by Capt Robert Cambpell.
As well as proud veterans and civic dignitaries, including the Vice Lord Lieutenant of Suffolk John Kerr, laying wreaths at the sea front war memorial serving soldiers from Colchester-based 7 Para Regiment Royal Horse Artillery and members of the RAF took part.
