There was a rainbow in the morning and the rain stopped for the Remembrance parade and services.
At the Chandler’s Ford war memorial, a crowd of hundreds – from veterans to youth groups, families, and people of different ethnic groups – all gathered to pay their respects.
Hursley Road looked like this in 1918 (peace day celebration), and 1989.
But today it looked like this:
A two-minute silence was observed at 11am on the Centenary of the Armistice, marking 100 years since the end of World War One.
It was lovely to see many familiar faces again. 94-year-old War Veteran Frank Damerell from Chandler’s Ford, accompanied by his son Phil, laid a RAFA (Royal Air Forces Association) wreath during the annual Remembrance Sunday Service at the war memorial at St. Boniface Church in Chandler’s Ford.
Here are some photos taken from this morning’s gathering in Chandler’s Ford.
