During yesterday’s commemorations for those who lost their lives in the line of duty, the Royal British Legion’s Letchworth branch mustered at the war memorial in Station Place and observed the two-minute silence at 11am.

After the Last Post and Reveille were played, the procession marched down Broadway to St Michael’s for a memorial service.

In Baldock, the Royal British Legion, personnel from the partly Hitchin-based 254 Medical Regiment and others gathered at the war memorial at the north end of the High Street and fell silent at 11am.

The names of fallen soldiers were read out by pupils from Knights Templar School, led by their headmaster Tim Litchfield.

Further two-minute silences will be observed at the Letchworth and Baldock war memorials at 11am on Wednesday to mark Armistice Day.
