Passing remembrance on to future generation – Oxfordshire Guardian

Parades in Abingdon, Wallingford and Didcot were also very well-attended.

The military and civic procession, led by the Air Cadets Band, moved through the town before going into People’s Park where more than 40 poppy wreaths were laid at the war memorial.

This year’s tribute was the first since the town’s war memorial was updated to include those who died serving their country in all wars and conflicts at home and abroad as well as the fallen in the two Worlds Wars.

Silence fell at 11am as personnel remembered those from across the world who died or were injured in the service of their country.

Visitors from Bicester’s twinned towns in France, Germany and Poland also laid wreaths.
