Wisbech remembers its Fallen with annual Remembrance Sunday parade and service
The people of Wisbech came together today (Sunday) for the annual Remembrance Day commemoration and to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1.
Huge crowds - the largest for many years - lined the streets to watch the parade march from the Market Place, where it mustered, to the town's War Memorial for the annual wreath-laying ceremony and for the two minutes' silence.
The parade included young and old alike, veterans, current service personnel and representatives from youth organisations including the army and air force cadets.
The Exhortation was given and the Last Post and Reveille played during the solemn ceremony, which saw dozens of wreaths laid in memory of the town's Fallen.
After the wreath-laying the parade reformed to march to St Peter's Church for a service of remembrance led by the Rev Canon Matthew Bradbury.
At 10am the bells of Walsoken's All Saints Church rang out as part of the nation-wide Ringing for Peace to mark the centenary of Armistice Day.
