TRIBUTES were paid in the Huddersfield area yesterday to the millions who lost their lives in battle.
Remembrance Day services were held for the soldiers who died serving their country in the two World Wars and other conflicts, including the Gulf Wars.
Members of the Huddersfield branch of the Royal British Legion marched from Huddersfield Town Hall to Huddersfield Parish Church in Byram Street for a service conducted by the vicar of Huddersfield, the Rev Catherine Ogle, and Huddersfield Methodist Mission minister, the Rev Alan Boyd.
The Rev Ogle said: "I preached about how important it is to remember and to honour people who have struggled for good."
A minute's silence was held and after the service a procession marched back to the town hall via Market Place.
Huddersfield MP Barry Sheerman attended the service.
In Honley, there was a wreath-laying ceremony at the village's war memorial. The Honley branch of the Royal British Legion held a service in St Mary's Church then Scissett Youth Band led the congregation to the war memorial at the village cemetery on Green Cliff.
Wreaths were laid by Honley Guides, Honley Scouts and Honley Liberal, Conservative and Socialist Clubs. The Last Post was played and silence held before the group marched to the village centre and the band played to elderly residents outside Burhouse Court.
In Holmfirth, wreaths were laid at the village war memorial. There were many other services, including ones in Golcar, Almondbury, Mirfield, Kirkburton, Shepley, Marsden and Meltham.
