Town's Royal British Legion branch celebrates its 100th birthday

* The parade crosses Castle Street to head down Bridge Street past the war memorials.

Llangollen branch of the Royal British Legion marked its 100th birthday with a special celebration today (Saturday).

Branch members, in partnership with the town council, play a high-profile role in organising the annual Remembrance ceremonies around the war memorials in Centenary Square and also have a major role in the yearly poppy appeals.

The special event began with a parade, banners flying, through the town centre and continued with a special service of celebration in St Collen's Church. Later, there was a lunchtime gathering at the RAFA Club for branch members and guests involved in the organisation.

* Standards proudly flying, the march goes down Parade Street past the museum.

The marchers formed up outside Liberty Tavern at 11.45am to go head along Market Street and Parade Street then across Castle Street onto Bridge Street.

The parade performed an "eyes right" salute as it passed the two war memorials in Centenary Square before heading to church for the service conducted by Father Lee Taylor.

* Eyes right is ordered to salute the war memorial in Centenary Square.

* Father Lee leads the service in St Collen's.
