REMEMBRANCE in Stroud brought out people of all ages, and a younger generation of ex-service personnel.
Town councillor Kevin Cranston, a former Army helicopter pilot, was in attendance at Park Gardens yesterday and said whether people agreed with war or not, they supported the bravery of British soldiers.
"People are beginning to make the distinction between the person and the conflict, whether they think it's justified or not," he said.
"They recognise that our troops are out there doing their best. There were also quite a few younger faces in among the ex-servicemen too."
Civic dignitaries including Stroud MP Neil Carmichael joined Royal British Legion representatives and Army, Navy and RAF cadets at Park Gardens.
Park Gardens was given to the town by Sidney Park, whose soldier son Herbert died in a training accident in 1917.
