Residents, servicemen, veterans and councillors turned out in large numbers in Bridport to pay their respects on Remembrance Sunday.

It was the first time in two years a large public ceremony was held - last year's event being cancelled due to the pandemic.

The event, organised by Bridport Town Council, Parade Commander Brigadier John Dean, Rev Pete Stone of Bridport Team Ministry and a range of forces organisations, started with a parade through the town centre by representatives and veterans of HM Armed Forces, and local groups and organisations.

Accompanied by the Wessex Military Band, the parade moved off from East Street following inspection by the Mayor of Bridport, Cllr Ian Bark.

The traditional two minute silence at the war memorial was followed by the Service of Remembrance outside St Mary’s Church.
