South Downs College marks Armistice Day

A college in Waterlooville has paid tribute to Royal Marine Richard Hollington, a former South Downs student who, in June 2010, became the 300th British Serviceman to die during the conflict in Afghanistan.

In remembrance of those Service personnel who have given their lives in wars and conflicts, students marched and laid memorial wreathes.
