Remembrance Day commemorations are taking place across the islands this weekend.

JERSEY

Jersey's annual Remembrance Day service and parade will take place on Sunday at the Cenotaph.

His Excellency the Lieutenant-Governor Air Chief Marshal Sir Stephen Dalton, the Bailiff Sir William Bailhache, and the Chief Minister Senator Ian Gorst will be attending.

The ceremony will commence at normal at 11am with a gun salute and 2 minute silence after which wreaths will be laid. Then a service will be led by the Dean of Jersey, the Very Reverend Mike Keirle.

Then there will be a marching parade followed by a motorcycle ride-past.

Guernsey

In Guernsey the cannon at Castle Cornet will be fired at 11am and 11.02am to mark the duration of the two minutes silence. Admission to the Castle will be free from 10am to 12 noon, so the gun firing can be seen by the public.

A parade organised by the Royal British Legion will precede the Act of Remembrance, which takes place at the War Memorial in St Peter Port.

His Excellency the Lieutenant Governor will lead the laying of wreaths at the War Memorial, which will be followed by a short service and the singing of hymns.
