The breadth of groups laying wreaths in March spelt out this was a truly all embracing community act of remembrance.
From prison officers to a local supermarket, from the Royal British Legion to a motor cycle club and from the Red Cross to the armed services all lined up to pay their respects.
And in their hundreds – one estimate put it at 2,000, others said closer to 2,500- lined the streets to honour those who had served their country.
It was by far one of the biggest parades in Cambridgeshire and not a foot was put wrong as brownies, girl guides, scouts, armed services, air cadets, civic dignitaries, emergency services, and many other organisations and groups paraded from St Peter’s Church to the war memorial.
It followed the traditional act of remembrance in the parish church prior to the tributes centred round the war memorial in Broad Street.
