RGLI remembrance service in pictures

HERE are some of our favourite pictures from yesterday's remembrance service to mark the centenary of the RGLI's departure for the Western Front.

As part of the ceremony, a plaque in memory of the heroic regiment was unveiled. The memorial, positioned near the battalion's colours in the Town Church, has been funded by public and private donations following an appeal by the RGLI Charitable Trust and with help from our Guernsey's Finest Hour campaign.

A memorial will also be unveiled in France in November near the site of the notorious Battle of Cambrai in which hundreds of Guernseymen lost their lives or were injured, 100 years ago.
