Army Cadets from Neston detachment were busy in the weeks leading up to Armistice Day.
The eager youngsters from the Army Cadet Force contacted Neston parish church and asked permission to clean the First World War memorial in Neston town centre in preparation for the Remembrance Sunday parade.
Seven cadets spent two hours sprucing up the memorial, clearing away moss, dirt, bird muck and cobwebs as part of their Duke of Edinburgh award.
A spokesperson for the church said: “The squaddies did a brilliant job. We wish them all success in gaining their award.”
The cadets also volunteered weekends to sell poppies raising money for the Royal British Legion supporting veterans.
They then took part in the Remembrance Sunday parade where they marched alongside veterans from all the armed services setting off from Neston Royal British Legion and marching down to the parish church.
A spokesperson for the cadets said: “The cadets found this a moving experience and were humbled by the turnout of veterans on this, the 100th year anniversary.”
