A band-led parade took place through Dickleburgh as part of the country’s day of remembrance.

The Dickleburgh and District branch of the Royal British Legion came together in the village on Sunday, November 12 with the parade lead by the Gislingham Silver Band.

John Roberts carried the Union Flag while Gavin Macfarlane carried the Royal British Legion Branch Standard.

Members of the branch, and others who have served or are still are serving in the armed forces, were joined by local Sea Scouts, Cubs and Beavers and the Oxlip Group.

A large contingent from the 100th Air Refueling Wing of the United States Air Force, based at RAF Mildenhall, attended the parade as the USAF servicemen and women done for many years.

The parade finished at All Saints Church, where a service took place before many of the members were welcomed back to the 100th Bomb Group museum at Thorpe Abbotts.
