Remembrance Sunday was more poignant this year for one veterans’ group, which unveiled a tribute in memory of its former members and other servicemen.
Members of the Ilford 84 branch of the Parachute Regimental Association revealed their new memorial in Coronation Gardens, Romford, which commemorates all those who have served in the airborne forces and the Parachute Regiment.
The group attended Romford’s Remembrance service before marching back to the gardens to gather around the memorial.
The tribute was made possible by a grant of nearly £2,000 from the Veolia North Thames Trust.
