East Devon towns and village turn out in force to wear their poppies with pride
Towns and villages across East Devon paid tribute to the victims of war at remembrance Sunday Services today (Sunday, November 13).
At Axminster a parade of uniformed organisations was led by piper Brian Young, from Kilmington, from the south street car park to the war memorial on the Minster Green.
Co-ordinator Mervyn Symes read the names of the local men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice during both world wars before poppy wreaths were laid.
Prayers were led by Royal British Legion chaplain Rev Geoffrey Walsh, who also conducted the church service which followed.
