Thousands of people watched a procession of blazing fire banners being carried through East Hoathly last night as the village held its Bonfire for Remembrance parade.
Poppies were carried with each one representing and commemorating a villager lost in the two world wars and these pictures, capturing the scene were taken by Jim Holden.
This year’s bonfire, built by Keith Pettit, with the help of volunteers, showed the face of his great grandfather Reuben Burgess a villager who fought in World War 1.
The fire was lit by Reuben’s great great grandson Wilf Harrison Pettit and grandson Harold Pettit. The pair carried his name and a burning poppy to the fire site.
Keith Pettit is pictured in front of East Hoathly war memorial during a one minute silence.
More of Jim Holden’s pictures can be seen below.
