The traditional two minute silence at 11am was followed by the wreath laying and the March Past which saw nearly 900 personnel from the Royal Navy, Army and Royal Air Force, and over 8,000 veterans and charity workers take part.

Remembrance days are commemorated around the world on or near November 11 to mark the end of World War I on November 11, 1918, when the Armistice was signed at 5:45am. The Armistice didn’t go into effect until 11:00am that day, hence the two minute silence at 11am. Remembrance Sunday now commemorates all armed forces who died in conflict.
