Remembrance Day marked in Harold Wood with service and flag changeover

A ceremony to celebrate the changeover of a standard for Harold Wood Royal British Legion was part of a Remembrance Day service on Sunday.

A parade took place from the Harold Wood’s Working Men’s Club to the war memorial hall before a dedication service to mark the change of the standard, the branch’s flag.

Branch committee members Andrew Parnell, said: “It was a great turnout for the service. We would like to say thank you to everyone who attended.”
