Whitehead Royal British Legion was joined by representatives of uniformed organisations, council and residents of the town at the War Memorial.

It was one a series of Remembrance events across Mid and East Antrim to commemorate those who lost their lives in both World Wars and other conflicts.

There was added poignancy as the ceremony took place on the centenary of the 1918 Armistice.
