Seven trains ran to Paddington this morning bringing around 100 wreaths to be placed around the war memorial on Platform 1.

The scene at Swindon was repeated at scores of stations across the GWR (Great Western Railway) network.





The train carrying the wreaths from Swindon had started from Taunton and picked up more tributes along the way.



In a 20 minute ceremony at Paddington GWR MD Mark Hopwood paid tribute to those from the original Great Western Railway who gave their lives in the two World Wars before Barbara McGregor from South Wales, the longest serving female in the Royal Navy, read the Act of Remembrance ahead of the two minute silence.



The event was streamed live on Facebook and GWR should be congratulated for organsing the event and the very moving ceremony.
