Students, teachers and cadets remembered the Fallen in a ceremony at a Wisbech school ahead of Remembrance Sunday.
Thomas Clarkson Academy arranged the event on Friday where students lined the entrance hall and balconies to pay their respects.
Wisbech Mayor Councillor Steve Tierney said: “I was invited to join the students, teachers and cadets at Thomas Clarkson Academy for their remembrance service.
“Students lined the balconies and stairwells, holding the names of family members who were lost in conflict.
“I laid a wreath on behalf of the Town Council and paid my respects.
“During the service and the silence, despite thousands of students in close proximity, you could have heard a pin drop.
“What an honour it was to attend the school’s remembrance event.
