AN 80-strong congregation marked their respects to the Fallen at an evening church service in West Hanney.
The St James the Great Church held a candle-lit service and vigil in which parishioners were invited to lay rosemary plants in front of the church’s war memorial.
Bell ringers rang out a muffled half-peal ahead of the service at the Church Street church, which began at 10.45pm on Monday.
Associate minister, the Rev David Payne, said men from the village who fought and died in the First World War are included on a memorial at the church.
He said: “It’s important to keep that in our memory because the war had a massive impact on a place like this.
“It was only right to acknowledge the significance it would have had.”
