Businesses have also been doing their bit to commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War.
The bus company Arriva added a Royal British Legion poppy motif and a special thank you message to one of its buses in Stevenage.
At 11am on Remembrance Sunday, drivers held a two-minute silence on board their buses if it was safe and legal to do so.
Royal British Legion collection tins and poppies were also displayed in selected Arriva travel shops.
Craig Taylor, marketing manager for Arriva Herts, said: “We wanted to ensure we paid our respects to the fearless soldiers who gave their lives for our country by adding poppies to our buses to raise further awareness of the cause.”
