Hundreds of people came to this year’s Remembrance Sunday service at Burnham’s War Memorial, despite the forecast rain.
It was a moving ceremony, led by the Royal British Legion, Burnham Branch and representatives of the churches of Burnham-on-Crouch.
It was marked, at 11 o’clock precisely, by a cannon fired from the yacht clubs, the tolling of the bell in the Clock Tower and a trumpeter playing The Last Post.
This year featured a visitor to Burnham from Korea, to represent the peninsula to commemorate 70 years since the end of the Korean War (1950-53).
There were also representatives from Ukraine.
The PA system was kindly provided by Pete Crisp of Rooks Yard recording studio.
