Hundreds of people flocked to Angel Hill today to honour members our armed forces who have died during conflicts.
Under a sunny blue sky, crowds cheered as servicemen marched out of the Abbey Gate and onto Angel Hill.
A two minute silence was held at the war memorial at 11am before two Apache helicopters from Wattisham flew overhead.
Wreaths were laid and prayers were said before the march towards a civic service at St Marys Church.
Veteran Tom Wingham, who was shot down while on a bombing raid over Dusseldorf in April 1944, said the day gave people the chance to remember those who had given their life.
He said: “It’s a very important day in remembering our troops.
“It is very important to have days like this to keep them in people’s minds.”
