His Royal Highness The Earl of Wessex lead the congregation which included senior representatives of the Government and Her Majesty’s Armed Forces, Cadets and members of the public.
The service closed with a parade, with a salute taken by His Royal Highness the Earl of Wessex, supported by senior representatives of Her Majesty’s Armed Forces and a Spitfire flypast.
The Armed Forces Memorial is designed so that on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, when a two minute Silence is called in Remembrance of the cessation of First World War hostilities, a shaft of sunlight dissects its inner and outer walls, hitting the central bronze wreath sculpture.
