Women members of the Royal British Legion from the Yorkshire region gathered for a remembrance service at the Elvington Air Museum.

They had planned to hold a parade of standards at the Women's Air Memorial to the women's services involved in both World Wars. It forms part of the Allied Air Forces Memorial at the museum.

The parade was cancelled because of the rainy weather as the event was moved indoors and the engine start-ups by the Douglas Dakota and De Havilland Devon were cancelled, though two First World War biplanes did start up their engines in a hangar to mark the occasion.

The memorial service went ahead in full with the Rev Taff Morgan leading the service and the National Vice Chairman of the Royal British Legion Women's Section Pat Chrimes led the laying of wreaths after the traditional "They shall not grow old" tribute to the dead was read and the Last Post sounded.
