Servicemembers from RAF Mildenhall and nearby RAF Lakenheath participated in a military procession with British forces before the ceremony. The poppy flower is a traditional symbol of remembrance of World War I. It was in bloom across some of the worst battlefields in the war. (U.S. Air Force photo/Senior Airman Thomas Trower)
