Uniformed public service students at Newbury College marked Armistice Day today (Thursday), with all present on the college's grounds falling silent for two minutes to join the nation in honouring the fallen.

This year's occasion marks the 103rd anniversary of the end of the First World War.

Uniformed public service students laid wreaths next to the college's apple tree – planted to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day in 2019.
