THE Last Post rang out across Barkers Pool as Sheffield remembered those who paid the ultimate price in the Battles of Britain and Arnhem.

Wreaths were laid at the war memorial as veterans, cadets, serving members of the armed forces, civic dignitaries and local people paid tribute on Sunday. A march to the Cathedral was accompanied by Oughtibridge Brass Band.

The occasion was to mark the 71st anniversary of the Battle of Britain and the 67th anniversary of the Battle of Arnhem.
