A two minute silence was observed by around 500 people at St Paul’s Church.

This was followed by a parade down New Street and High Street, before a poignant service was held in the church.

Afterwards, the wreaths were laid down.

Paul Shaw, chairman of the Honiton Royal British Legion branch said the turnout from the community was ‘absolutely amazing’.
