By Rachel Armitage

The 79th anniversary of the Battle of Britain took place on Sunday.

As well as a parade through town, led by the Band of RAF College Cranwell and involving both current and ex-RAF personnel, the event was marked with a wreath-laying ceremony and a service in Newark Parish Church.

Officer Cadets from Royal Air Force College Cranwell joined 1260 (Newark and District) Squadron Air Cadets and 1208 Warsop Squadron Air Cadets, police cadets and old comrades in the parade, which made its way from London Road car park to the War Memorial along Baldertongate and on to Appletongate.
