NEWBURY honoured its war dead on Sunday as crowds packed the Market Place for the solemn service.

Among them was 94-year-old Frank Hancock, one of the last surviving members of the Burma Star Association, who was in the Royal Air Force and who led the Kohima Epitaph on Sunday.

Cubs, scouts, guides and brownies paraded from Pelican Lane at 10.25am into London Road, The Broadway, Northbrook Street, Mansion House Street and into the Market Place for the Remembrance Sunday Service and the two minutes’ silence.

Similar services were held in towns and villages across West berkshire and North Hampshire and the Newbury Weekly News will have full coverage, plus lots of pictures, this Thursday.
