I ended up attending my children's school remembrance service today followed by the village service at the memorial. The children spoke about men named on the memorial which was very poignant.
They all behaved impeccably around the memorial. Shame about the inconsiderate BT Openreach driver who attempted to drive through the service (he was halted part way by a gentleman attending the parade). Other drivers pulled over and turned off their engines so as to respect the memories of the fallen.
