Armistice Day is an important reminder of the things we take for granted - The Yorkshire Post says
Wreaths were laid to honour those who had lost their lives fighting for the liberty that we enjoy today.
World leaders have a duty to ensure that bloodshed is averted where possible and Remembrance services are a timely reminder to them of the cost of war. And it is a reminder to everyone of the sacrifices that previous generations have made for this country.
While we remember the fallen, it is also important to remember that Armed Forces personnel are risking their lives to keep us safe.
This weekend communities across the county, young and old, will come together to pay their respects. We cannot become complacent and must ensure that future generations carry on the memories of the sacrifices that have been made by our Armed Forces.
The region has a strong attachment to the military. We are home to Catterick Garrison, the largest British Army garrison in the world. Yorkshire has more than 170,000 veterans. In places like Richmondshire, one in 10 people is a veteran.
That is why it is particularly important for people to come together in this region and pay their respects over Remembrance weekend.
The Army will march in York with a Light Gun firing to signal the start of the two-minute silence.
There will also be a Yorkshire Regiment parade in Hull as they march to the war memorial.
It is a much needed occasion for us to be able to express our gratitude for the sacrifices that have been made in keeping us safe.
