Hundreds of people honoured Basingstoke and Deane’s war heroes in different services across the borough last week.
Hush descended across the surrounding area for two minutes on Friday at 11am, as residents marked 98 years since the end of the First World War with respectful silence.
One such ceremony took place at the borough council’s War Memorial, in London Road, where the mayor, Cllr Jane Frankum, lay a wreath, while a single bugler played the Last Post.
Remembrance Sunday saw the public come out in force to pay their respects, with a parade taking place in Old Basing from the Crown Lane Hall to St Mary’s Church.
A corps of drums from the Royal British Legion’s Old Basing branch led the procession, while a Chinook from RAF Odiham flew overhead, before a service then took place inside the church.
Basingstoke town centre also came to a standstill on Sunday morning, as servicemen and women of past and present, hoisted flags high into the air as they marched along New Road.
The parade then came to a stop at the council’s memorial, where wreaths and poppy crosses from members of the public were laid, before the mayor’s chaplain then led a service.
Cllr Frankum said: “One of my proudest moments in life was taking the salute today.
“My father would have been so proud, as an old soldier of 28 years, and in the Second World War.
“[I am] so proud of the people of Basingstoke and Deane.”
Deputy leader of the council, Terri Reid, also attended the service, and said: “It was so moving.
“With everything that’s happening, it’s time to think about what’s important.
“We need to remember, and it’s really heartening that, after all this time, so many people of all ages were there.”
