A COMMEMORATION service and parade will be held to mark the 35th anniversary of the Falklands conflict.

The focal point of the ceremony in Gosport will be at the Falkland Gardens, in the town centre.

The service will start at 11am on May 21.

It will include a roll of honour recorded by St Vincent College students and flowers will be laid by families and friends.

After the service the parade will march through High Street towards the town hall. Then veterans and other guests will continue to Walpole Park for a reception.

Gosport held its first service of remembrance in 1997, and has hosted one every five years since.
