After a service in the parish church, the 101 Squadron and Association standards were paraded alongside the banner of the 1228 Louth Air Cadets to the memorial itself for the wreath laying ceremony.

Lancaster veteran ‘Rusty’ Waughman gave the Ode of Remembrance before the BBMF Lancaster performed a flypast.

As always, the event ended with tea at the village hall provided by the WI.
