A CEREMONY has been held to mark the closure of Colchester's branch of the Korean War Veterans' Association.
A short parade and inspection by the Lord Lieutenant for Essex, Lord Petre, was followed by a packed service at the Garrison church in Fallowfield Road.
The poignant service was led by the branch padre Reverend Dr Hamlet and during it, a standard was laid to rest.
A number of VIPs attended including the Mayor and Mayoress of Colchester Colin and Laura Sykes, and town MP Sir Bob Russell.
