As the brass band played the haunting notes of the Last Post, residents may have been in South Woodford but they were transported to every field, trench and combat zone where military personnel fought for the country’s freedoms.

The congregation at St Mary’s church, High Road was at capacity on Saturday (November 11) to mark Remembrance Day.

Canon Ian Tarrant led proceedings and said the service hit the right tone.

“It was unfortunate that the rain meant that we had to have the ceremony indoors but there did seem to be more people than usual and children from St Aubyn’s School came along with their families,” he told the Recorder.

“We had a brass band from Redbridge music service and they were excellent

“They played the last post and people thought they were spot on.”
