Hastings remembered the fallen soldiers and their families with a honourable Remembrance Sunday war memorial, remembering members of the Armed Forces who have died in battle.

 

The parade started in town with groups of cadets, girl guides, scouts, veterans and soldiers gathering. Following a route to Alexandra Park, soldiers stopped to lay their wreaths and respects on the war memorial, coming together to bring humility and unison to the ceremony.

 

Those whom attended, believed to be a total in its hundreds, paid their respects to the memory of those serving and those whom lost their lives with a two minute silence, as well as laying wreaths to remember the fallen laid by a number of groups during the Remembrance Service.

 

After the ceremony had finished, the parade returned back into town to draw to a close.

 

Local businesses also paid tribute by honouring the two minute silence, with coffee connoisseurs Costa Coffee uniting both customers and staff in silence by showed their respect by making no transactions during the 2 minutes.

 

Will armistice day on Wednesday, the Royal British Legion will be holding another short ceremony and parade outside Priory Meadow shopping centre, to commemorate the armistice signed between the allies of World War I and Germany, which stopped hostilities on the western front during the war.

 

The poppy wreaths placed on the memorial on Sunday will be moved on the 28th November to 'heroes corner' at Hastings crematorium. Hastings will remember them.
