Huge crowds packed Wisbech Market Place on Sunday to watch the annual Remembrance Day parade march to the town’s war memorial.
The parade, led by the Combined Cadet Band, was made up of representatives from a wide range of organisations including the Royal British Legion town council, Fenland District Council, the Old Comrades, the scouts and guides, and St John Ambulance.
More than 30 wreaths were laid at the cenotaph where the Salvation Army band played the National Anthem and also provided the bugler for the Last Post and Reveille.
Those laying wreaths included representatives of the Old Comrades Association, Mayor Michael Hill as well as all the emergency services.
The parade then marched to St Peter’s Church where the standard bearers formed a guard of honour as people entered for the Remembrance service led by Father Paul West.
