and Bed­worth cel­e­brated Ar­mistice Day and Re­mem­brance Sun­day with poignant tributes to the fallen.

A World War Two era plane dropped thou­sands of pop­pies on Bed­worth town cen­tre on Satur­day in what re­mains the largest Ar­mistice Day event in Bri­tain.

This year the vet­er­ans were joined by mem­bers of 30 Sig­nal Reg­i­ment.

In neigh­bour­ing Nuneaton, a ser­vice of re­mem­brance was held at the war me­mo­rial in River­s­ley Park on Sun­day.

Wreaths were laid on the me­mo­rial by those present, and in a poignant touch, a sin­gle wreath was placed at the foot of the ‘Old Bill’ statue.

The ser­vice, which was pre­ceded by a pa­rade start­ing at Mar­ket Place in the town cen­tre, drew huge crowds once again.
