THE centenary of the outbreak of the First World War has been commemorated in a series of events across the region.

A service to mark the 100th anniversary of Britain’s involvement in the conflict was held by the Llangollen branch of the Royal British Legion at the town’s war memorial yesterday morning.

A bugler from Llangollen Silver Band sounded the traditional Last Post as standards were paraded, and the Rev Andrew Sully, of St Collen’s Church, said a short prayer.

A procession including representatives of the armed services and members of the town council and the general public marched from the church to the town cenotaph.

The ceremony followed a service at St Collen’s Church.

There was a further informal gathering at the war memorial in the evening.
