A touching Armistice Day commemoration took place at Wisbech General Cemetery.
Poppy wreaths were laid on the graves of men who served in the First World War and a poem was recited by pupils from St Peter’s Junior School.
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission has recently installed new headstones on nine of the graves that were previously unmarked.
It comes as part of the restoration of the Wisbech General Cemetery and Chapel.
A soldier from the Second World War and 10 from the First World War who died in England as a result of injuries sustained in service are also buried in the cemetery.
