Young and old paid their respects to members of our armed forces who died in conflict on Saturday in South Woodford.
Residents, politicians, veterans and children joined the congregation at St Mary’s Church, in High Road, to remember the fallen on Remembrance weekend.
Army cadets marched to the church before the service, to commemorate those who died in the First World War, Second World War and more recently in the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts.
Redbridge Mayor Cllr Gurdial Bhamra and council leader Cllr Jas Athwal laid wreaths of poppies, with MPs Iain Duncan Smith and Wes Streeting.
Mr Streeting told the Recorder it was “great to see” children from local schools involved in the Remembrance Day services across Redbridge.
