Marlow fell silent at the weekend as a record number of people turned out to remember fallen war heroes in a poignant Remembrance Day service.

Around 6,000 people attended the service at the war memorial in The Causeway on Sunday, which also marked 100 years since the day the WW1 guns fell silent.

The parade, which included members of the RAF, Army, Navy and, for the first time, Royal Marine Reservists, arrived at the memorial after marching from the Royal British Legion headquarters, in Station Approach, led by Lt Col Shaun Murphy, with Sir Colin Terry, KBE, CB, Deputy Lord Lieutenant for Buckinghamshire also in attendance.

Reverend Dave Bull gave the introduction and welcome, and was joined by Reverend Nick Thompson, of Marlow Methodist Church, who read a prayer of Thanksgiving for the end of WW1.

Pastor Kenneth Claessen, of Newfield Community Church, gave a reading. The Last Post was played by bugler Simone Davie before the two-minute silence. Following Reveille, the bells at All Saints Church rang out to celebrate the end of WWI.

The names of fallen war heroes were read out by Marlow mayor Chris Funnell and cadets from the three Armed Forces, while wreaths were laid at the war memorial.

The parade then marched back up the High Street while Sir Colin Terry took the salute.
