BRANCHES of the Royal British Legion paid tribute to the fallen at the annual Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day parades and services.

The Shoreham branch paraded to St Mary de Haura Church last Sunday, where the service was led by the Rev Ann Waizeneker and the Rev Gerald Kirsch.

The congregation included the grandmother and aunt of Lance Corporal James Brynin.

Mr Kirsch, the Shoreham Royal British Legion’s padre, invited all to stand and applaud for the 22-year-old soldier, who was killed in action in Afghanistan.

Secretary Barbara Bradley said: “It was very well attended. We had a lovely parade and a lovely service at the church.”

She praised the cadets and Scouts, who were collecting for the Poppy Appeal.

“They were very well received,” she added.

A wreath-laying ceremony was held at the war memorial, in East Street, on Monday at 11am.
