It was a day of remembrance as the Kensington community and surrounds remembered those who died in World War I and II.
Jeppe High School for Boys held its annual Remembrance Day service on November 11 at the school.
The event has been held annually for the past 94 years.

The service was attended by representatives of other Jeppe schools and numerous old scholars.
Also in attendance were representatives of the Memorable Order of Tin Hats (Moths), specifically the Dickie Fritz Shellhole in Edenvale which was named after two Jeppe Masters who lost their lives in Bardia, Libya in World War II.
The memorial service was also attended by the Last Post Shellhole.
The service was officiated by Bishop Michael Gill from the Anglican Church.
His sermon focused on remembering those who made the ultimate sacrifice in fighting against tyranny.
Jeppe Boys Headmaster Anton Dempsey read the roll of honour which included 170 names of Jeppe Boys and Masters who died during the two World Wars.
A poem written by John McCrae in May 1915, In Flanders Fields, was read during the ceremony. It is believed that the poem was inspired by the death of McCrae’s friend, Alexis Helmer.
This year the weather allowed guests and the pipe band after the service an opportunity to march along Highland Road to the top of the nearby koppie to lay a wreath at the Scottish Horse War Memorial.
