Armed forces in Enfield were honoured and commemorated during a special service and parade on Sunday.

The borough marked the national Armed Forces Day with a parade of veterans, families, recruits and cadets between the Enfield Town war memorial and Enfield Civic Centre.

The event fell almost 100 years after the outbreak of the First World War, and just more than 70 years on from the D-Day landings.

A service at the civic centre recognised the bravery of Enfield’s past and present military personnel and a flag was raised in their honour at 11am.

Enfield Council leader Councillor Doug Taylor said: “Our armed forces do a difficult and often extremely unpleasant job with the utmost professionalism, and we owe them an enormous debt of gratitude for the freedoms and opportunities we take for granted today.”

Was a great day and glad to be part of it, just one thing I would suggest is the pitcure is of the 45(ish) Air Cadets and staff we had on parade so would be nice to mention them too perhaps?
