The Yorkshire Regiment band cut sombre figures in somewhat fittingly solemn weather on Monday afternoon as a flag was raised in memory of fallen army comrades.

A special flag raising ceremony took place at Dock End for Armed Forces Day and the band played on to members of Whitby Town Council and the public who had turned out to pay their respects, despite downpours of rain.

However, serving personnel will be celebrated at a day of events in town tomorrow (Saturday) where the public can show its appreciation of of them.

Events will be taking place throughout the day at Dock End for all the family to enjoy.
