A day to remember 

Services held across the town for Remembrance Sunday
 
It was a day to remember on Sunday, in services held across the town to commemorate lives lost during the two World Wars.

Two-minutes' silence were shared at 11am, in church services in Swindon and the surrounding area.
 
Memories for all:
Thousands lay their poppies in
thought of the thousands who
fought for their country
 
Events were attended by hundreds, and people have been wearing their poppies with pride in preparation for the annual event, to symbolise their thoughts for the thousands of soldiers who fought for their country.

And with the British Army's involvement in the Middle East in recent times, Sunday also offered an opportunity to remember those who have fought in conflicts since the World Wars, and in particular those who are fighting now.

Take a look at our gallery below, to see just how Swindon remembered...
