More than 80 people attended St Michael and All Angels Church in Glassenbury Drive for a service to the end of Battle of Britain Week.
The congregation last Sunday included Bexhill Mayor Cllr Frances Winterborn and Deputy Mayor Cllr Brian Kentfield, plus other representatives of Rother District Council.
The service was lead by Fr Stephen Huggins, who is honorary chaplain for RAFA Bexhill branch, and spoke of the great sacrifice made by The Few and the “undoubted debt we all owed to them.”
The standards of seven local veteran organisations were paraded during the service.
Fr Huggins said: “A particularly moving and uplifting part of the service was the Act of Rededication in which all present committed themselves to striving for a better world - rededicate ourselves to building a world in which there is justice and peace for all, and where women, men and children live a life full of human dignity.”
The service concluded with the National Anthem “with great gusto” as the standards were lowered as a mark of respect.
Afterwards, he said, there was “a superb reception” in the Community Centre.
