On Remembrance Sunday, Stow Maries Great War Aerodrome welcomed around 1,000 visitors to join the Service on the Parade Ground.

The service commenced with a flypast and spectacular poppy drop by The Tiger Club.

Aircraft started arriving in the morning and the pilots were treated to a full English breakfast in The Airmen's Mess.

We had the largest ever number of vintage and classic aircraft ever at Stow Maries, including the rare Queen Bee, a Leopard Moth, Tiger and Hornet Moths, Stampes, and a Tipsy.

The service was conducted by the Reverend Mary Cottee, and was attended by local councillors and dignitaries, members of the Armed Forces, Scouts and the ATC, and the bugle was played by Andy Smerdon.

BBC Look East were filming throughout the day for a feature on the evening news.
