SERVICEMEN and women, veterans, dignitaries and members of the public took part in a parade on Sunday to remember those killed in the Battle of Britain.

Members of the Stamford branches of the Royal Air Forces Association and Royal British Legion joined Stamford town councillors and dignitaries at Stamford Town Hall.

From there they marched to All Saints’ Church for a service at 11am and following the service, they continued the parade to the war memorial in Broad Street for a wreath laying.

After the parade had finished, those gathered enjoyed refreshments in Browne’s Hospital in Broad Street.

Mayor of Stamford Bob Sandall said: “There were a fair few people there and it was very humbling to see so many people on the parade.

“It is a very important part of our history.”
