At the Piece Hall, Mayor of Calderdale, Ann Martin, addressed the crowds. She said it was a chance for people to “show their support, their gratitude, recognition and appreciation for those that did serve and are serving and will be serving the future”.

She said: “It is only right we remember them not only today but every day and value what they do for us.”

She added that it was important that we look after each person. “It is our job to continue to support them,” she said. “I am honoured and proud to join the people of Calderdale to say a big thank you to the armed forces past, present and future.”
