Hundreds of people from different military backgrounds took part in Remembrance Day parades across Banburyshire on Sunday.
Crowds lined the pavements and traffic was brought to a standstill in Banbury, Brackley and Chipping Norton as Banbury’s procession was led by the band of the Air training Corps marched from the town hall and up High Street and along Horsefair to St Mary’s Church.
In the parade were members of the Royal British Legion, Army Reserve Forces, ex-servicemen, members of the regular forces, uniformed support services, and cadet forces. The military group was followed by a civic party led by Banbury town mayor Tony Mepham and MP Victoria Prentis.
Following the church service more than 60 poppy wreaths were laid at the cenotaph in People’s Park .
Brackley also paid its respects to their fallen heroes on Suanday with a parade through the Market Place and onto the Piazza, and war veterans in Shipston-on-Stour gathered in the High Street outside the George Hotel before marching to St Edmund’s Church for a service.
