A retro tribute to the heroes of South Tyneside with 9 poppy scenes

The UK was today paying tribute to its heroes as we fell silent in remembrance.

Remembrance Day marks the armistice agreement that ended the First World War on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918.

Each year, we pay tribute with a silence in the honour of those who fell, as well as by wearing poppies such as in these 9 retro photos from South Tyneside.

From Bede Burn Primary School to Morrisons in Jarrow and Temple Park Junior School to Ashley Road Primary, we look at poppy scenes from the Shields Gazette archives.
