Today, a live history display will be staged at Caerphilly Castle of a First World War camp.

There'll also be a chance to discover more about women's history, meet the cavalry horses and listen to war poetry from the time.

Commemorations are also continuing elsewhere.

In Penarth in the Vale of Glamorgan, where over 300 servicemen lost their lives during the First World War, a service will be held at St Augustine's Church to remember the fallen and those who were injured.

The service will include the re-dedication of the newly restored Roll of Honour at the Church.

The Friends of St. Augustine's agreed to commission the reguilding of the names in time to mark the centenary.

Restoration was secured thanks to a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund and the War Memorial Trust.
