The parade will also include representatives of the Royal British Legion and other armed forces organisations, cadets and uniformed services.

Following the Clifton Park ceremony, events will conclude with a march past of Rotherham Town Hall, with the Mayor and the Deputy Lord Lieutenant taking the salute.

On Saturday, which is Armistice Day, an Act of Remembrance will take place at 11am in All Saints’ Square, Rotherham, led by Rev Humble and the Royal British Legion.
