Remembrance Sunday saw hundreds of people fall silent across Chester this morning to remember the nation’s war-dead.
The streets of the city were lined with people paying their respects to honour those who made the ultimate sacrifice to give their lives for their country.
A service held at the city’s cathedral was followed by a poignant ceremony in the memorial garden to commemorate those who lay down their lives in battle and to fulfil a promise that they would not be forgotten.
Veterans stood tall amongst serving members of the armed forces and other dignitaries to mark the special occasion.
Then, the Last Post rang out before Chester fell silent.
Hundreds watched in silence as dignitaries and military representatives came forward to lay wreaths on the war memorial in respect and memory of our heroes.
A tribute from Cheshire Yeomanry read: “When you go home tell them of us and say for your tomorrow we gave our today. Never forgotten!”
Another from Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service said: “Lest we forget. Remembering and honouring our heroes on behalf of Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service.”
St John’s Ambulance wrote: “For those that gave their lives and those that cared for them. We will remember them.”
A parade of military personnel led by the band was then applauded through the city’s streets and finished in front of Chester Town Hall.
