MORE than 100 people gathered at Bromsgrove’s Odd Fellows memorial on the High Street to mark Armistice Day.
The announcement was made by Bromsgrove Town Crier Kevin Ward and, after a short service by Rev Ray Khan, vicar of St John’s and the chaplain to the Bromsgrove Royal British Legion, the town fell silent at 11am.

At the end of the service Rev Khan told people to ‘go in peace and remember to love their neighbour’.
Patrick Smith, the chairman of the Bromsgrove Royal British Legion, said: “It is amazing how, regardless of what day Armistice falls on people come to the Odd Fellows Memorial to remember.
“The silence was marked as impeccably as ever by the people of Bromsgrove who always pay their respects to the hard work of our servicemen and women.”
