As is tradition, the leaders of Britain's main political parties joined the Royal Family in central London on Remembrance Sunday to pay their respects to those who have lost their lives in war.

After observing two minute's silence, the leaders of all the Westminster parties with six or more MPs laid wreaths of poppies at the Cenotaph.

After being criticised for either not bowing or not bowing "deeply enough", even though video footage showed that he definitely did bow, Jeremy Corbyn left this message on his wreath:

In memory of the fallen in all wars. Let us resolve to create a world of peace.

And here's the one left by prime minister David Cameron (whose bow was achieved without controversy):

In memory of those who gave everything for our freedoms and our way of life. They will never be forgotten.

Oh, Ed.
