THOUSANDS of Huddersfield people united on Remembrance Sunday to honour all the people who died fighting for their country.
A large number of services of remembrance were held throughout the district.
As ever, the town's annual parade was well attended.
Hundreds of representatives of the armed forces, members of the Royal British Legion, cadets and St John Ambulance service personnel joined the parade at Huddersfield Parish Church.
The parade set off at 10.15am, marching through Byram Street, St Peter's Street, John William Street, New Street and Ramsden Street.
Speaking before the service, held this year in the Town Hall, Mayor of Kirklees Clr Donald Firth praised the people of Huddersfield for their overwhelming support.
A poignant service was introduced by the vicar of Huddersfield, the Rev Catherine Ogle.
The Bishop of Pontefract, the Right Rev Tony Robinson, preached the sermon.
His words were particularly moving, as he made reference to not only the horrors of the First and Second World Wars, but also today's conflicts in the Middle East.
He said it was important to remember as everyone has been touched by war in some way.
War veterans later said they were impressed by the service.
Brian Wood, 75, from Almondbury, served as a corporal for the REME (Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers).
During the Second World War he was posted to a number of countries including Argentina and Egypt.
He said: "It was a very nice service, very fitting.
"I think children ought to come to these services. They need to be educated on the history.
"They need to know why these wars are caused and that they shouldn't have happened."
John Stern, 80, from Cowlersley, served with the Royal Scots.
He said: "It's very important that people keep coming. It's nice to see young people here as they should know about it."
In Holmfirth a service was held at Holy Trinity Parish Church, followed by wreath laying at the War Memorial.
