Young cadets at Mount St Mary�s College, Derbyshire, marched to remember fallen war heroes at a special memorial service to mark Remembrance Day.

On Thursday, November 11, at exactly 11am, students and staff gathered in the school�s Memorial Chapel for a service of remembrance.

Uninformed members of Mount St Mary�s Combined Cadet Force (CCF) took part in a parade, marching to the churchyard war memorial to lay wreaths at war graves.

The names of former students who gave their lives in the war are displayed on the walls of the chapel, which is a registered war memorial site.

Students will also parade through Hathersage on Sunday, November 14 to remember those who have died fighting for their country.

The CCF has two sections, Army and RAF, for Year 10 and 11 students, although many opt to continue in to Sixth Form, where they can be promoted up the ranks.
