Ex-service men and women in Guernsey have been invited to take part in the island's annual Remembrance Day parade.

The Royal British Legion organises the event, which will be attended on Sunday by four visiting Chelsea Pensioners.

The traditional route will take them from the Town Arsenal in St Peter Port to the Bailiwick War Memorial at the top of Smith Street.

A bugler will sound the last post at 11:00 GMT to mark the beginning of the two minute silence.

This will be followed by a short service and wreath laying.

Gordon Sanders, 76, who was one of the Chelsea Pensioners collecting for the Legion's Poppy Appeal prior to Remembrance Day, said he believed Guernsey people were particularly keen to remember.

Referring to the island's occupation by German forces between 1940 and 1945, he said: "If anybody knows what freedom's all about, the people of Guernsey do."

Derek Payne, 81, Ted Roberts, 69, and Albert Willis 76, are the other Chelsea Pensioners who have made the trip to the island.

Other veterans who wish to join the parade have been invited to meet at the town fire station no later than 10:15 or join when it arrives at the memorial at approximately 10:40.
