An estimated 100 people gathered at Wisbech war memorial last week to honour the fallen.

President of Wisbech Royal British Legion retired Col Derrick Buckenham, pictured, led the service, which took place on Wednesday and included the Last Post.
He said: “I was really pleased with the turn-out especially on a weekday.”
The Legion has also been presented with £800 raised by knitters Janet Leet, Jackie Walker, Diane Bardsley and Pat Coley.
The group have been knitting and selling poppies.
Mrs Leet, of Emneth, said: “I did this in memory of my father, Sgt Jack Bockins, who was a tank commander in the 8th tank regiment.”
