“We remember all those who gave their lives,” the mayor said. “They gave their lives for our peace and freedom, in conflicts across the world.

“Remembrance Day is always a moving and poignant day, lest we forget.”

Barnet Council leader Cllr Barry Rawlings and opposition leader Cllr Dan Thomas also joined the veterans and serving members of the Armed Forces, as well as cadets, representatives of the emergency services and the Salvation Army at the service.

Wreaths were also sent to Barnet’s twin towns in France, Chaville and Le Raincy, for their Remembrance services on Armistice Day to mark the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month when the guns of the Great War fell silent in 1918.
