Many members attended the big service at the Cenotaph in London, but many others attended those in the towns where they live and UKIP chairmen participated in the wreath-laying ceremonies there. Here are their reports, with the photos they took.

I had to rush out this morning to the service by the memorial in Eastbourne. Dad was brought up a catholic but an atheist so no church today. Service was lovely though – plenty of wreath laying and marching. Hymns prayers and the national anthem:

Ceremony in Tewkesbury:
The weather stayed good in Tewkesbury for the Ceremony. There was a big turnout. Have attached a few pics. I trust the weather stayed kind in the other locations! Regards, Bob Smart

Please find attached photos from Stonehouse, Gloucestershire – my hometown where I laid a wreath today. I will send you a photo tomorrow morning of the wreath on the war memorial. Last photo is of me marching in the Parade. In Stonehouse today there were approximately 2,000 people who turned out for the parade and service on the town green. All three services were represented. A contingent of UKIP Gloucestershire were joined in the afternoon by Ernie Warrender UKIP National Spokesperson for Small Business and Rural Affairs who earlier laid a wreath in Cam, Gloucestershire on behalf of UKIP Stroud., at a remembrance service at Gloucester Cathedral in the afternoon hosted by Her Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant of Gloucestershire. A very moving service.
