A large crowd gathered at the Ross-on-Wye Market Place on Friday, November 11th, to remember those who died in the First World War, the Second World War, and in every conflict ever since.

At 11o’clock, on a crisp, autumn morning, heads were bowed as a two-minute silence was marked. Local residents joined the Mayor of Ross, local Councillors, council staff and members of the Ross-on-Wye branch of the Royal British Legion in the act of Remembrance.

The start and finish of the two minute silence was marked by the sounding of a maroon. The traditional readings were given by RBL branch President Graham Aplin, President Air Commodore Vivian Warrington, and Cllr David Ravenscroft, the Mayor of Ross.

After the Remembrance service had ended, several of those who had attended told the Gazette that they had found it very moving, and some tears had been shed.
