Remembrance Sunday has been hailed a Remembrance record as more people than ever attended services and ceremonies across Tameside and Glossop.
This, the 100th anniversary year of the start of the First World War, undoubtedly brought an added poignancy to Remembrance parades and events, with literally thousands paying their respects to those who paid the ultimate sacrifice.
Young and old stood shoulder to shoulder to remember, not only the veterans of two world wars, but those who lost their lives across a century of conflict to ensure the safety of our country today.
Further services of Remembrance will be held locally tomorrow (Tuesday) to mark the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, marking the end of the First World War.
There will be a full round up of Remembrance services and parades from across our region in this week’s Tameside Reporter and Glossop Chronicle.
