A Remembrance Sunday ceremony held at the cenotaph in Middlesbrough in Cleveland earlier today saw veterans, serving soldiers and Army cadets join hundreds more members of the public to show their respects. Following the ceremony the troops marched along Linthorpe Road which was lined on both sides by the public.
Remembrance Sunday is held on the second Sunday in November, the Sunday nearest to 11 November which is Armistice Day which marks the end of hostilities in the First World War at 11 a.m. in 1918. This year also marks the centenary of Britain’s entry into World War One.
Remembrance Sunday is held to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women in the two World Wars and later conflicts.
