COMMUNITIES across Teignbridge came together in a show of solidarity on Sunday, November 12, as the country paused for a poignant moment of reflection to remember those, both and past and present, who lost their lives in conflict.
Wreathes were laid in the towns and villages across the district, with hundreds upon hundreds of residents gathering at their respective war memorials to pay their respects on Remembrance Sunday.
Parades were held in Ashburton, Chudleigh, Dawlish, Newton Abbot, Teignmouth, Kingsteignton and elsewhere.
