Standard bearers for the Shoreham-by-Sea branch and Sussex County paraded either side of torch bearer Mick Moore as he marched to the War Memorial in East Street.

A short ceremony saw veteran Mr Moore pass the torch to county youth officer Niall Slark, symbolising the next generation carrying on the important act of remembrance.

To end the ceremony, county chairman Ray Collins presented branch chairman David Slark with a certificate of thanks.
