March town centre was packed with people who turned out in force to pay tribute to those who lost their lives in war as they gathered around Broad Street memorial.
In a procession that included veterans, youth cadets, local scouts and guides, the ceremony was led by Rev Andrew Smith of St Peter’s Church.
The parade left Sainsbury’s car park and wound its way to the church for a packed service.
The parade then returned into town for the official two minutes silence and prayers.
Wreaths were laid by organisations from across the county, veterans, NE Cambs MP Steve Barclay, members of the British Legion, civic dignitaries and emergency services.
