The names of loved ones who lost their lives as serving members in British Armed Forces' conflicts will be read out during "Forever Remembered" at the war memorial, Holy Trinity Church, Fareham from 9.45am.

There will be a Parade from the Duke of Connaught's Own Club in Western Road to the war memorial stepping off at 10.36am. The parade will march down Kings Road onto West Street arriving at the war memorial where the two minutes silence will be observed at 11am followed by the wreath laying ceremony and church service.
