A ceremony has been held to open the Garden of Remembrance in York today.
The ceremony, organised by the York branch of The Royal British Legion, saw dozens of people and many veterans gather for prayers, hymns and tributes to those who gave their lives for the country.
Reverend Canon Peter Jones led the prayers at the South Africa War Memorial in Duncombe Place, before the Last Post and Reveille were played by musicians from the York Railway Institute Golden Rail Band, and veterans and members of the public laid tributes and wreaths.
Bob Burrows is a veteran of the Royal Corps of Signals and saw active duty in Brunei and Borneo, and attended with his family, including seven-month-old grandson Luca, who had travelled from Chesterfield for the occasion.
