Tributes were paid to the fallen heroes of both world wars and other conflicts in a moving Remembrance Day service in Windsor.
Crowds gathered on the pavements yesterday to see the procession down the High Street as veterans and representatives made their way to the war memorial outside St John the Baptist Church.
Reverend Margaret Bird officiated at the memorial and people of all generations stood solemnly to observe the two minutes' silence at 11am.
The Deputy Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead Cllr Andrew Jenner led the Act of Remembrance and laid wreaths to commemorate those who have died in service.
Peter Knibbs, 82, of Rutherford Close, Windsor, has served 50 years in the Windsor Sea Cadets and saw conflict in Korea and Malaya.
He said: "I think Remembrance Day grows every year, it gets more popular because of those who are losing their lives in Afghanistan.
"Unfortunately there will always be people losing their lives in conflict."
