Remembrance Day Services in Castleford and Pontefract

Remembrance Services have been held around the country and we were able to attend the ones at Pontefract and Castleford. Due to a combination of excellent weather and this year marking the 100th anniversary of the start of World War One, there were record numbers of people attending both events. It is also 70 years since the D-Day landings, and the year Britain is ending its combat role Afghanistan after 13 years of fighting
