Yesterday the country observed two minutes silence on Remembrance Sunday in honour and respect of Armistice Day.

The Queen and other members of the royal family, all of whom have served with the forces themselves joined Her Majesty to lay a wreath at Cenotaph in Whitehall.

The Duke of Edinburgh, himself a Second World War veteran, Princes’ Charles and Andrew, Princess Anne and Prince William were all dressed in full military uniform whist attending the service of remembrance.

Along with the royal family and leading politicians were some 9000 ex-service personnel and members of the general public who paraded to Whitehall passing the memorial of which has an enormous significance on such an occasion.

With many services of remembrance taking place up and down the country it is astounding to see so many people showing their love and support to our troops past and present.
