Crowds gathered in their thousands to commemorate the fallen on Sunday at the War Memorial in Portway.

The parade which set off from Station Road was led by the Royal British Legion Bikers as it has been in previous years.

Several representatives from the the military were also in attendance including Corporal Robert Cunningham who was the piper as names were read from the war memorial.

Sophie Murrison, daughter of MP Andrew Murrison represented her father and laid a wreath at the memorial, and the Military Wives Choir performed Poppy Red.

Warminster town clerk, Fiona Fox said: "An estimated 3000 people attended the service which was great to see.

"We felt honoured to have the Lord Lieutenant and vice Lord Lieutenant of Wiltshire with us.

"We wanted to make sure everyone who was following the parade got to the war memorial to hear the welcome speech given by Mayor Tony Nicklin, so we wanted to wait until everyone had arrived.

"The wreath laying was very touching, and lots of people from the wider community laid wreaths.

"We also have a wonderful display of poppies at St Lawrence chapel.

"The fact that so many people came out to join us was wonderful, and the service was very emotional, I get a little emotional thinking about it now."
