Former armed service members will be back on the march in honour of their fallen comrades this Remembrance Sunday.

The Royal British Legion West Kilburn branch is marking its 65th anniversary with a parade along Carlton Vale to St Augustine Church for a remembrance service, and back again.

Youngest marcher, seven-year-old Simon Kehoe, will be proudly wearing the medals of his great-grandfather, who served in World War One.

his mum and volunteer poppy collector, Elaine Kehoe, said: "I don't think we should forget. The armed service members gave a lot for us. It's just one day a year where people can say: 'Thank you'."

The community is invited to join the parade, which will begin at 9.30am at the RBL West Kilburn branch, 1a Albert Road.

The Civic Remembrance Service and Parade will be held at the memorial site in Queen Elizabeth Gardens, Barham Park, Wembley.

During the service the mayor will lay the first wreath which a cadet will carry until the appropriate time, this will be followed by the deputy lieutenant.

If party leaders wish subsequently to also lay wreaths this would be in order. Others wishing to lay tributes will then follow.

At the end of the service, Sunset Ceremony will be performed and then, weather permitting, the parade will march past with the Mayor and Deputy Lord Lieutenant taking the salute.

The Royal British Legion Remembrance Service is held at St John the Evangelist Church in Crawford Avenue, Wembley, from 10.35am to noon.
