A Worcester shopkeeper has created a Remembrance Day display featuring poignant pictures of St John’s residents.

The display, in the window of St John’s Shoe Repairs, shows people from St John’s serving in the military.

Owner Allan Price always marks Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday with a display of military items and poppies.

This year, he also asked residents to pop into the shop with their photos - and said he had a fantastic response.

“A few of the photos are of my family, including my grandparents who fought in the First and Second World Wars,” said Mr Price.

“But we’ve got a couple of Falklands chaps, people who served in the Gulf War and a girl from the Women’s Royal Army Corps.”

Mr Price said the project has meant he has had some fascinating conversations with people who have called into his shop with pictures for the display.

“This has been a great way of hearing people’s stories,” he said.

“You can read a book and it’ll tell you this regiment did that, or about this manoeuvre, but you don’t always get the personal stories from individual soldiers, which is what I’m interested in.

“I’ve also had a lot of people sticking their heads around the door to say the display looks great - I’m very pleased.”

Mr Pricesaid he will be shutting his shop for about half an hour on Saturday to attend the Armistice Day service at St John’s Church.

And on Sunday he plans to attend the service at Worcester Cathedral before raising a glass or two in the pub.

A number of road closures will be in place on Sunday as Worcester’s annual Remembrance parade takes place in the city centre.

Hundreds of people are expected to take part in the traditional Remembrance Sunday event.

The closures are expected to be needed between 8am and 12.30pm. 

Police have said pedestrian access will be maintained at all times.
