CHESTER came to a standstill yesterday morning as people paused to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
Crowds of people lined the streets and applauded as servicemen and women paraded through the city before attending a service at Chester Cathedral.
Veterans and serving armed forces personnel stood shoulder to shoulder with cadets, the emergency services, residents and community leaders and sung a hymn at the cenotaph before observing two minutes’ silence.
Hundreds of people paused for reflection and poignantly honoured the fallen with many laying poppy wreaths.
Following the silence, the parade was saluted by Lord Mayor of Chester, Pamela Booher, before once more marching through the city.
