On the 90th anniversary of Armistice Day when the Armistice at the end of the First World War was signed on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, record numbers turned out to watch the parades.

The ceremonies, remembering the dead of two world wars and other conflicts, were led by The Royal British Legion.

They included veteran servicemen wearing their medals. In the parades were civic dignitaries, Army and Sea Cadets, Scouts, Guides members of Boys Brigades and schools as well as general members of the public. The MP for Huntingdon, Jonathan Djanogly was at the service in St Neots. After the Remembrance Day service in Godmanchester, the Deputy Mayor, Councillor Malcolm Cohen and Councillor Richard Butcher visited the seven war graves in Godmanchester to lay commemorative remembrance crosses.
