SOLDIERS joined schoolchildren to plant flowers at a care home for veterans.

Members of 12 Regiment Royal Artillery, based at Thorney Island, travelled to Worthing to pay their respects and visit a nearby care home to plant bulbs.

The soldiers joined residents of the Queen Alexandra Hospital Home to mark Armistice Day and share stories.

Lance Bombardier Jack Legallais, 24, from Portsmouth, stood alongside dignitaries, members of the public and school pupils to pay respects at the town’s war memorial.

He said: ‘It was a very proud moment.

‘It felt good to be representing not only my unit but also the Royal Artillery at this poignant event.

‘I was amazed at the banter that still takes place between the veterans.

‘They have extraordinary memories and their ability to recap on the details of such significant events is outstanding.’
