Canon Albert Radcliffe welcomed the guests for a service which included hymns, war poetry readings by trustee Col Leanda Pitt and Broughton House volunteer Owen Hammond, and the placing of wreaths on the war memorial by people representing Broughton House, Royal Navy, the Army, Royal Air Force, Merchant Fleet, residents and Salford’s veterans.
Trustee Air Vice-Marshal Jon Lamonte gave a reading and Sir Netar read a lesson from St John.
Ty Platten, chief executive of Broughton House, paid tribute to residents who have passed away in the last 12 months.
Students from the University of Salford played the music for the hymns, the Last Post and the National Anthem.
