ARMISTICE 100

A front page from the Kilburn Times dating back to the Second World War brought together a pair of long-lost cousins - who didn't even know of each other's existence.

Caribbean families flooded into a Willesden church to pay their respects for fallen soldiers who sacrificed their lives in both World Wars.

A band of ex-Gurkhas from Wembley's Nepalese community led Sunday's parade to Barham Park war memorial, where a civic service of remembrance took place paying tribute to military personnel killed in conflict over the past century.

It's a hidden part of British history, but to a community it's a chapter that means a great deal.

Three days before the guns fell silent signalling the end of the First World War, more than 40 soldiers from north London were listed as dead.

When the sound of rockets was heard across north London on November 11, 1918, some feared for their lives.
