The people of Lincoln joined the millions across the country in a two minute silence commemorating Remembrance Day.


In a short service on the Lincoln War Memorial, hundreds of people gathered to remember the soldiers who have fallen in the two world wars and most recent conflicts.

The heavy rain did not perturb the Lincoln public as they held an impeccable silence after The Last Post had played.

Before The Last Post, a veteran soldier spoke to the crowd. He said, “They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old. Age shall not weary them nor do the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember.”

The service ended with the ever present reminder at why everybody was gathered to remember the soldiers who have given their lives.

“When you go home, tell them of us and say for your tomorrow, we gave our today.”
