Veterans who were based at RAF Witchford were remembered at the 115 squadron memorial.

Families and friends visited the former airfield, which is now Lancaster Way Business Park, dedicated to those who failed to return to Witchford from operations.

They attended a remembrance service at St Andrews Church, by Reverend Teresa Dixon, before laying a wreath at the memorial during a shorter service.
