WOOTTON BASSETT, ENGLAND - AUGUST 31: Crowds gather in Wootton Bassett High Street as the union flag is lowered, handed over and blessed in a sunset ceremony on August 31, 2011 in Wootton Bassett, England. The union flag was lowered to commemorate the end of the repatriation route through the Wiltshire town as flights are switching to RAF Brize Norton from September. 345 servicemen and women have been repatriated through RAF Lyneham and Wootton Bassett since the ceremonies first began in April 2007.
