Every year in November, villages, towns and cities across Britain honour those who have lost their lives in war on Remembrance Sunday. While Queen Elizabeth leads tributes at a national service of remembrance at The Cenotaph war memorial in central London, various neighbourhoods also hold their own local marches and memorials. For the last eight years, Reuters photographer Kevin Coombs has attended the annual parade in his London neighbourhood of Fulham, capturing on camera the military personnel and brass bands taking to the streets as well as those watching them from the sidelines. From residents looking out their windows to dog walkers and a road sweeper stopping in their tracks, his pictures show people watching the march from near and far, some deeply moved by the occasion.

Workers sweep the road to remove ash spewed by the Cotopaxi volcano in Chasqui, Ecuador, August 14, 2015. Ecuador's massive Cotopaxi volcano stirred in the early hours of Friday, with two small explosions reported and ash raining down on the southern part of nearby highland capital Quito. Authorities stressed that the explosions and a five-kilometer (3 mile) high plume of ash do not signify that the Andean country's highest active volcano, which has been showing signs of activity since April, is about to erupt.

RNPS - PICTURES OF THE YEAR 2014 - PHOTOGRAPHERS' STORY
Armed pro-Russian separatists (R) escort a column of Ukrainian prisoners of war as they walk across central Donetsk in this August 24, 2014 file photo.

It was an awful sight: A column of jaded and haphazardly dressed people walking along the street surrounded by armed rebels. Citizens were shouting curses and throwing eggs at them. The column was followed by street sweepers washing the road after the prisoners. The scene looked like a farce or copy of the parade of German prisoners in World War Two in Moscow in 1945.

I think this image perfectly shows the negative emotions of conflict: weakness, devastation, shame, fear on one side and spite, aggression, rage and desire for revenge on the other.

It reminded of a quote 'History repeats itself, first as a tragedy, second as a farce'. - Maxim Shemetov REUTERS/Maxim Shemetov (UKRAINE - Tags: POLITICS CIVIL UNREST TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY)

A man moves a bicycle loaded with plastic boxes as he passes woman cleaning the street in Guangzhou, Guangdong province August 26, 2014.

An unidentified man, who calls himself Mangetsu-man (Mr. Full Moon), pauses as he cleans Nihonbashi bridge using a broom with a volunteer, while clad in a costume featuring a full moon for a head, in Tokyo August 25, 2014. While most superheroes fight crime, for one such Japanese hero the enemy is garbage and his "super" weapons are a broom, a dust pan and an army of volunteers who have joined his mission. Calling himself Mangetsu-man, he first appeared on the streets of Tokyo last year without any publicity or fanfare and mainly cleans around the city's Nihonbashi bridge. Historically, Nihonbashi bridge is Tokyo's most famous bridge until an expressway was constructed over it shortly before the 1964 Tokyo Summer Olympics, and ruined what was for many its iconic status. Mangetsu-man is one among many who are petitioning for the government to get rid of the overhead highway and clean it up ahead of the next Tokyo Summer Olympics in 2020.
