Dartmoor marked Remembrance Sunday with moving services taking place across the national park including Bovey Tracey, Ashburton, Okehampton, Tavistock and Chagford.

People gathered from across the Moor to commemorate those who lost their lives in conflicts from the First World War to the War in Iraq.

In addition to the special services at war memorials across the county, there was a special ceremony at Exeter Cathedral to mark the 100th anniversary of Remembrance Day.

Kevin Jefferey, from Exeter’s Royal British Legion, said: “If we don’t remember, then we don’t learn. We have to remember those that have gone before us, those that have served, those that have sacrificed, and those that are still serving.”

Stagecoach South West went even further to mark the occasion by offering free bus travel to all armed forces personnel and veterans carrying ID who attended services on Sunday, 10th November. In London, political leaders joined members of the royal family at the Cenotaph.

Hundreds of armed forces personnel were also there to pay their respects to those killed in past and present conflicts.

Here we present some of the best pictures from across our beloved moor.
