The Borough War Memorial and the Soviet War Memorial were the focal points for Remembrance Sunday observances in SE1.
Around a hundred residents gathered at the Borough High Street War memorial on Sunday morning for the annual remembrance of war dead.
Cathedrals ward councillor Adele Morris read a passage from Isaiah before silence fell across the street for the two minute silence during which police held traffic at the Southwark Street and Union Street junctions.
Local armed forces representative Mustapha Fofanah recited the words of Lawrence Binyon,"They shall not grow old; as we that are left grow old", before laying the parish wreath.
Others placing wreaths at the foot of the memorial included Cathedrals councillor Geoffrey Thornton who represented the council's Liberal Democrat Group. Cllr David Noakes laid a wreath on behalf of Simon Hughes MP who was at the Royal Marine Reserve HQ in Bermondsey.
They were joined by Gilles Catoire, Mayor of Southwark's twin town Clichy in France.
Pointing to the museum, Simon Hughes said: "The building here is not here to glorify war. It to remind people how horrible and fatal war is.
"We are here to remember that it is always better if we can to prevent war and prevent conflict rather than engage in it. We are here to learn the lessons of war and the lessons of the heroism of our friends in order to build a more secure international peace.
"I ... am now in a party of government [and] pledge my colleagues and I to seek to work with all our colleagues around the world to build a future of peace so that we never have the mass slaughter of people on our continent in an armed conflict.
"Your presence is hugely appreciated and the people of Southwark are very honoured that this happens in this borough and on their soil."
Wreaths were laid at the Soviet War Memorial by the Mayor of Southwark Cllr Tayo Situ, Simon Hughes MP, Cllr Mark Glover on behalf of Southwark Labour Group and Cllr Eliza Mann representing local Liberal Democrats. Embassies of many former Soviet republics were also represented, as were many local and Anglo-Russian organisations.
