Lytham salutes the almost-forgotten soldier

As millions marked Armistice Day across the world, members of the public, old soldiers and serving servicemen and women stood in silence for the arrival of Harold Percival's funeral cortege at the crematorium in Lytham St Annes, Lancashire.


The funeral began at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. Credit: Lynne Cameron/PA Wire
