Ipswich’s annual remembrance service has started with a moving parade through the town marking the sacrifices of Suffolk’s soldiers 100 years ago.

A procession of town dignitaries and servicemen left the Cornhill at 10.30am to make its way to Christchurch Park for a service at the War Memorial starting at 10.50am, where crowds gathered early on a bright and sunny day.

After the service, civic guests will move in a procession to the saluting base, close to Christchurch Mansion, where the mayor and the Lord Lieutenant of Suffolk, Clare, Countess of Euston, will take the salute at the March Past.
