At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them
ACTS of remembrance were performed by hundreds of people across the Cheadle, Uttoxeter and Blythe Bridge areas over the weekend.
This year, Armistice Day fell on Saturday and Remembrance Day on Sunday – prompting a full weekend of commemorations across the Moorlands.
Servicemen and women, military veterans and members of the Royal British Legion were joined by families, cadets, scout and guide groups and schoolchildren at church services and parades as well as in observing the traditional two-minute silence at 11am on both days.
People paid their respects in a variety of ways – many joining the traditional parades and services, while others created special wreaths, honoured animals killed in combat, or wore the medals of their predecessors while remembering their sacrifice.
