The town of March fell silent today as hundreds stood – many with heads bowed – as Remembrance Day was observed.

The two minute silence saw scores of organisations from across March and beyond come together at the war memorial following an earlier parade to St Peter's where a service of remembrance was held.

Mayor Rob Skoulding was among those from March Town Council represented at the event that was organised by the March branch of the Royal British Legion. Wreaths were laid from over 80 individuals and groups following the two minute silence and service at the war memorial.
