POPPIES pinned to chests, thousands of Silhillians bowed their heads in respectful silence at the weekend as they paid tribute to the servicemen and women who have served their country – and the many who have paid the ultimate price of their life.
In Solihull a service was held outside St Alphege Church to remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice not only in the World Wars but also more recent conflicts.
A two-minute silence was held while people reflected and remembered those who lost their lives in battle.
This year’s parade marked 100 years since the end of the First World War.
Members from the air, sea and army cadets paraded through the town on a poignantly fresh Sunday morning.
