TENBURY has been remembering those who made the supreme sacrifice in war.

It paid its respects to those from the town and surrounding area that have died in wars since 1914.

Twice in two days the town came to a standstill and fell silent.

A chilly and damp November morning did not stop people turning out in numbers for the annual parade and service of remembrance at St Mary’s Church.

The parade lined up adjacent to the new Tesco store before setting off through the town.

Taking part in the march was Mark Willis the Mayor of Tenbury along with other members and officers from the Town Council.

Representatives from the services and service organisations made their way through the street led by a band that played the music that every year is such a familiar part of Remembrance.

Some of those who took part in the parade defied the years to take part but there were also many younger people for whom war is something that they can only know from history books.

The Tenbury Royal British Legion was at the heart of the ceremony and standards were lowered when they got to St Mary’s Church.
