The Band of the Household Cavalry paraded through Windsor on Remembrance Sunday to join the regiment as it paid its respects at a service at the Holy Trinity Garrison Church.

Hundreds of onlookers lined the streets as soldiers marched past, joined by members of various community groups and organisations.

Many decorated veterans also came out to join those carrying their banners.

Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead, Cllr Eileen Quick, led the Act of Remembrance at the war memorial at the church in St Leonards Road, where a number of wreaths were laid.

Mayor Quick said: “It was a very good turnout particularly at the memorial. There were large crowds which shows the ways people appreciate the sacrifice which has been made.

“As first time going to the service as Mayor it was very special. I found both the service at the church and at the memorial were very moving.

“At a time which there is such a high level of alert in the country I think it is amazing to see the British people aren’t scared off and they do turnout and do come to this kind of service all over the country.”

Park Street, High Street, River Street, Goswell Road, Osborne Road, Alma Road, Claremont Road and Sheet Street were closed off to traffic during the morning.
