HUNDREDS of residents gathered in the city on Sunday to pay their respects at the annual Remembrance Sunday event. 

The ceremony was led by the Salisbury Branch of the Royal British Legion who are known as the national custodians of Remembrance. The event was supported by Salisbury City Council and St Thomas's Church.
