Remembrance Day tributes held at Lincoln Cathedral

This story is over

Hundreds gathered at Lincoln Cathedral on Remembrance Sunday, November 8, to pay tribute to those who fought in the World Wars and following conflicts.

As part of a programme of events taking place across Lincoln and the surrounding areas, the remembrance welcomed people to the cathedral from 10.30am.

Following this, veterans and military personnel from various squadrons took part in a parade through the Bailgate area of the city from 12 noon.

Lincoln schoolchildren played their part in a special remembrance service at the Bomber Command memorial on Canwick Hill on November 3.

They placed poppies on the walls of names, which pay tribute to the thousands of Lincolnshire Bomber Command aircrew who lost their lives during conflict.

The children represented friends, relatives and descendants who were unable to make the journey to Lincoln due to distance or age.

Services continue to take place throughout the week.
