People lined the streets of Bognor Regis on Sunday to watch the annual Remembrance Day parade and pay respect to those who have died while serving their country.

Service personnel joined members of Aldwick branch of the Royal British Legion, cadets, scouts and guides in a traditional march through the town.

The parade set off from close to the library in London Road and wound its way to the War Memorial in Clarence Road, where a two minutes’ silence and remembrance service took place.

The event was organised by the Aldwick branch of the Royal British Legion in partnership with Bognor Regis Town Council.

A wreath-laying ceremony was also held on Armistice Day, Friday, November 11, at the council offices in Rose Green.

In Yapton there was a large parade through the village on Sunday, which involved local scouts, councillors and residents, before a service was held at the Memorial Garden in Yapton Road.
