GIANT poppies will adorn the steps of Portsmouth Guildhall for an annual service of remembrance.

The 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War will be marked by the red flower in Guildhall Square this Sunday.

The remembrance event will be attended by Prince Michael of Kent, Honorary Rear Admiral and Commodore-in-Chief of the Maritime Reserve, who will lay a wreath at both the First World War and Second World War memorials as well as taking the salute as the parade marches off from the square.
