RESIDENTS paid tribute to Britain's servicemen and women at a special event honouring their difficult work.
Members of the Royal British Legion, and Army, Navy and RAF cadets were among about 100 marchers who kept pace with the Hendon and District Brass Band.
The parade for Armed Forces Day left from the Greenford branch of the Royal British Legion, in Oldfield Lane South, at about 10.30am on Saturday. An Army colonel from Whitehall and a Navy commander from HMS President took the salute.
The marchers headed for the Greenford War Memorial in Greenford Broadway where the branch's chaplain and rector of Holy Cross Church, Neil Richardson, led a service.
It is the second year Armed Forces Day has been held in Greenford and hundreds of residents came to show their support along with Ealing North MP Steve Pound, Ealing Council leader Julian Bell and councillors.
Bryan Binning, president of the Greenford Legion, said: "It's not just about the veterans, like me, but a thank you and recognition for those serving our country today. We're going to run it every year so the public can show their support for the troops."
