The celebration of the work the armed forces do attracted crowds again, with visitors heading from the nearby Exmouth Pride festival through the day.

Mayor Jeff Trail opened the event, accompanied by the town crier Roger Bourgein.

There were more than 20 stalls in The Strand, organised by different charities and armed forces organisations such as the Royal British Legion.

An armoured ‘Jackal’ proved popular, as did a weapons stand provided by the Royal Marines Commando Training Centre, in Lympstone.

The afternoon display by the Exmouth Pipe Band and the Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service Corps of Drums rounded off the day’s arena performances.

The funds raised are still be counted up and the AFD committee will then decide which worthy causes to make their donations.
