Thousands of people across Marlow packed out the High Street and beyond as they paid their respects on Remembrance Sunday.

Both the young and old queued by the Causeway where everyone observed the two-minute silence, sang hymns and paid tribute to Marlowvians who had died in both World Wars and other conflicts.

Those who died from the town had their names read out during the service with several wreaths being laid next to the town’s war memorial.

The service was organised by the town council which saw members of the RAF, army, navy, Marlow Bottom Brownies and many more all take part in the parade with Sir Henry Aubrey-Fletcher, saluting those during the ceremony.

The Marlow Town Band were also in attendance where they performed several moving pieces, which included Abide with Me.

The group of musicians also played both the British and French national anthem, as the deputy mayor of Marlow’s twin town, Marly-le-Roi, in France, was also present.

Marlow’s Mayor Richard Scott said: “I think we’ve seen over the years that Remembrance Day gets bigger and bigger and we’ve got superb support from all the services and residents.

“We’ve put on a very good program for the day so we could commemorate those who died in the two world wars and indeed other wars.

“We had a huge number of people take part in the parade and we had a lot of residents here so it’s becoming a big day in the county’s calendar.

“We are delighted to have so many people here from a diverse background and of course, Sir Henry Aubrey Fletcher has been taken into the parade and has done the salute."

Not long after the service took place on Remembrance Sunday, both Mr. Scott and deputy mayor of Marlow Bob Johnson flew out to France to take part in Marly-le-Roi’s service on November 11.

He added: “We’ve been twinned with Marly-le-Roi for over 40 years and we’ve attended every single commemorative event and they’ve attended our event too and we really respect the day."

Bob Johnson then added: “We’ve had fabulous support from the residents as we had quite a few thousands of people so it’s always great to see so many people involved.

“The ceremony has got slightly longer over the years and that’s because there are more people to thank.

“We have got such a great community over here that we’ve got so many volunteers who want to help.

Sir Henry Aubrey Fletcher, Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire added: “We had fantastic weather, thousands of people and it really was a tremendous turnout.

“Everything went like clockwork and there is no rehearsal or anything.

Marlow has always been a community town and I think for events like today, that’s one of the main advantages as people will come together.”
