Cllr. Anni Young, Axminster's Mayor, gave a moving speech to the gathered crowd on the Minster Green, during the service led by the Royal British Legion Chaplain, Geoffrey Walsh.  Wreaths were then laid by the Mayor on behalf of the Town Council and David Warner, Chairman of the Royal British Legion, after which the last post was sounded.

Thanks went to Mervyn Symes for compering and assisting in the organisation of the event.

The Mayor and David Warner also laid wreaths at the memorial beside the entrance to the former American Military Hospital at First Avenue at Millwey Rise.
