A national remembrance service took place at St Peter’s Square in Wolverhampton this morning.
At 11am, the city fell silent as it took part in the nationwide two minute silence.
Hundreds of people gathered in the square to remember those who died in past conflicts.
Servicemen and women participated in the outdoor drumhead service.
Veterans, the Band of the West Midlands Fire Service, cadet units and personnel from RAF Cosford, HMS Forward, 210 Battery and 4 Mercians.
Nick Roberts, who has been a standard bearer for sixteen years said;
“It is important that we remember all those who lost their lives for our freedom.”
Also in attendance were civic dignitaries, including the Mayor of Wolverhampton, Councillor Greg Brackenridge, who lay wreaths.
Councillor Brackenridge said;
““It is important that we stop and remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, not only to honour their sacrifice, but also to remember the horrors of war and the danger those in our armed services continue to put themselves in for our country.”
