Hundreds of people gathered in Royston yesterday to remember those who lost their lives while at war.
More than 40 organisations were in attendance at the the Royston Remembrance Day Parade, including members of the Black Watch Highland Regiment from Scotland.
Former servicemen led the march from Queens Road to the war memorial on the one hundredth anniversary of the start of WW1.
A two minutes silence was then observed at 11am.
Chris Murphy, chairman for the Royston brance of the Royal British Legion, who has spent his time organising the memorial service since August, said: “Remembrance Sunday is something that’s proven to be pretty big in this town, and it’s well supported by the towns people.”
