IT was a big moment for young musician Martin Lloyd as he had the responsibility of sounding the Last Post and Reveille for Remembrance services.

The 11-year-old passed the test with flying colours at the poignant service in Waterlooville.

Representatives and families of the armed services, as well as members of the fire brigade and other current and former military personnel, attended a service of remembrance at St George’s Church in the town centre on Sunday.

Meanwhile, roads were closed in Horndean as scores of people gathered to watched a parade through to the village from the Scout hut to the war memorial.

A further act of remembrance takes place in St George’s Walk in Waterlooville tomorrow from 10.50am.

All are welcome to attend the service.
