The commemoration began at Mansfield Civic Centre where dignitaries from local and national government, the armed forces, Mansfield’s public sector and army veterans lay wreaths at the town’s cenotaph.

An armed forces parade then marched from the cenotaph through Mansfield town centre, where hundreds of residents watched on as the drums and bagpipes led the parade onto St Peter’s Church for the remembrance service.

Dignitaries then made their way into Mansfield’s market place to salute fallen soldiers from all conflicts since Armistice Day 100 years ago.
