HUNDREDS of people lined the streets of Suffolk to stand and honour the country's fallen heroes.

Across the region war veterans gathered to stand side by side to remember the fallen and wounded heroes by the laying of poppy wreaths.

In Ipswich, it was the first time that soldiers killed since 1945 were honoured at the Remembrance Parade at the cenotaph memorial in Christchurch Park.

Lorraine McClure, mother of Private Aaron McClure who was killed while serving in Afghanistan, laid a wreath to honour her son and the five other Ipswich-born soldiers killed in conflicts since 1945.

Ms McClure said “I feel totally honoured to have been able to have done that.

“It was very emotional but I'm lucky that my son's name is on that memorial after only two years - other families have been waiting for so much longer.”
