The 101st anniversary of the end of World War 1 was marked at a short 11-11-11 Remembrance service at the town’s war memorial this morning.
A maroon sounded at 11am to mark the moment the guns fell silent on the Western Front on November 11, 1918.
The service was led by the Rector, Fr John Wall.
John Gorrie laid a wreath at the memorial, in the grounds of Holy Cross Church, on behalf of the Uckfield branch of the Royal British Legion.
Among those present were the deputy town mayor, Cllr Jackie Love; the town clerk, Holly Goring; other councillors, members of the Royal British Legion, a group of Uckfield firefighters and children from Holy Cross school.
A small number of townspeople were also present.
