A ceremony was held in Huntingdon’s market square to mark Sea Sunday.
The mayor of Huntingdon, Councillor Bill Hensley, was joined by Huntingdon and District Sea Cadets and members of the public to lay a series of wreaths at the town’s war memorial.
Sea Sunday is held to remember the UK’s seafarers, past and present, and honour their dedication and sacrifice.
Also at the service were standard bearers for the Royal Naval Association and the Merchant Naval Association, along with Col Derek Bristow, president of the Huntingdon Royal British Legion.
Cllr Alan Mackender-Lawrence, said: “I would like to thank Huntingdon Town Council for their support and for the unanimous decision taken by the council in setting this date as fixed into the future civic diaries for the years to come.”
