Cadets, veterans and active servicemen and women marched from the Salthouse Fields to the bandstand and war memorial to remember the town’s fallen soldiers.

Clevedon’s Royal British Legion chairman Bob Blackwell said the day was ‘perfect’ with little wind and a blue sky.

He added: “A wreath was laid at the town’s war memorial before we returned to the bandstand for a drumhead service.

“This event has been going on for a long time and we want to make sure we remember our soldiers and those who died so we can do what we do today.”

Cadets and music groups played the bagpipes and drums and standards were flown as crowds gathered at the bandstand.
