We will remember them

Town centres and workplaces came to a standstill at 11am today to honour servicemen and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

The Last Post was sounded in Stevenage Town Square as members of the Royal British Legion and members of the borough council led tributes to those who gave their lives in the Great War and every combat since.

The gathered mass of former servicemen and women, dignitaries and public fell silent for two minutes after the town clock sounded the eleventh hour – marking the moment the guns on the Western Front finally fell silent at the end of the First World War.

In Hitchin, Letchworth and Baldock services were also held at the towns’ war memorials.
