Crich remembers the fallen

Hundreds turned out at an annual pilgrimage to commemorate soldiers who gave their lives in service to their country.

On Sunday at 3pm former members of The Mercian Regiment and their families gathered at the War Memorial, in Crich.

The Lords Lieutenant were present,  as well as high sheriffs, mayors and civic dignitaries.

Crowd gathered at Crich Stand, a memorial which was originally built to commemorate the 11,409 Sherwood Foresters killed in the First World War.

It is now a memorial site for the Sherwood Foresters, Worcestershire and Sherwood Foresters and 2nd Battalion Mercian Regiment.
