Mark the sacrifices of nation at Remembrance Sunday service.

People across Wolverhampton will come together to mark Remembrance Sunday - and the 95th anniversary of the end of the First World War - at a service in the city centre in November.

The annual Observance of Remembrance takes place on Sunday 10 November, 2013, and will begin with a parade through the city centre.

The Band of the West Midlands Fire Service will lead a parade including detachments from ex-Service, Regular, Reserve, Cadet Units and representatives of other local uniformed organisations, starting from Wulfruna Street at 10.40am. Turning right into Prince's Square, the parade will go along Lichfield Street to Queen Square, Exchange Street and across Cheapside to St Peter's Square, where a Drumhead Service - the traditional form for a religious service attended by troops in the field - will begin at 11am.

This will be followed by a second service in St Peter's Collegiate Church. Members of the public are being invited to attend the event, along with civic dignitaries including the Mayor of Wolverhampton Councillor Milkinder Jaspal and local councillors.

Mayor Councillor Jaspal said: "The annual Remembrance Sunday parade is an opportunity to pay tribute to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in combat over the years. "This year's event will be especially poignant as it will be the 95th anniversary of the end of the First World War. "I hope as many people as possible will join us in marking the dedication of the men and women of our Armed Forces, past, present and future."
