Parts of Falmouth and Penryn fell silent on Saturday and again on Sunday as the two towns paid tribute to those who lost their lives in conflicts dating back 100 years.

In Falmouth, mayor Grenville Chappel led the tribute on Armistice Day on Saturday, at the St Nazaire Memorial on Prince of Wales Pier where the two minutes silence was observed while in Penryn there was a service of remembrance and wreath laying at the Memorial Gardens.

On Remembrance Sunday the Kernow Pipes and Drums led the parade in Falmouth which left The Moor and made its way up to Kimberley Park were the service was held at the town's War Memorial at 11am. Among those represented were Falmouth Town Council, veterans' organisations, Falmouth and Penryn Sea Cadets, Falmouth Army Cadets, the Falmouth Air Training Corp, Falmouth Police Cadets and youngsters from the Beavers, Guides, Cubs and Scouts.

In Penryn there was similar representation at the town's parade which had been hosted by mayor Shelley Peters and the Penryn branch of the Royal British Legion. Here, the parade assembled at the Temperance Hall before marching to St Gluvias Church where there was wreath laying and the Remembrance Sunday service.
