Grantham will be remembering those who gave their lives for their country this Sunday.
This year Remembrance Sunday falls on November 11th Armistice Day, the anniversary of the end of hostilities in the First World War at 11am in 1918.
At 10.20am the parade will leave the bus station and travel through the town centre to St Wulfram's Church, where a service will be held.
Following the service, at about 12.30pm, the parade will march to St Peter's Hill where there will be a salute.
People are being urged to pay their respects by gathering in St Peter's Hill.
Remembrance Sunday - held on the second Sunday of November - commemorates the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women in the two world wars and later conflicts.
