Former railway workers pay their respects.

FORMER rail workers took part in a remembrance service in Rugby to remember their friends and colleagues who died in wars.

The service was held at the Centrac engine depot in Mill Road and was conducted by the Rev Liam Johnston, the Railway Mission Chaplain for the West Midlands region.

During yesterday's service those who attended held a two minute silence.

Among them were Alf Cooper, who served in the South Staffordshire Regiment, and Dennis Palmer, who served with the Royal Warwickshire Regiment.

Mr Palmer, of Saunton Road in Overslade, said today: "The service was very moving and was a fitting tribute."
