On Tuesday, Spalding watched as dozens of former servicemen and women marched through the town centre in remembrance of past and present forces personnel.

The Armed Forces Parade, which also commemorated a century since the outbreak of the First World War, was organised by the Spalding Royal Naval Association as part of a series of related events, which saw the Armed Forces Flag raised the previous day by South Holland District Council.

The parade proceeded from Hall Place to Market Place and was led by the Spalding Marching Ambassadors, followed by the Lord Lieutenant of Lincolnshire, Tony Worth, and the chairman of South Holland District Council, Coun Robert Clark.

The procession commenced in the market place, where Rev John Bennett gave a short service of remembrance and Major Dennis Hammond performed “Abide With Me”.

This was followed by the national anthem and a recital of the Lord’s Prayer.
