The Channel Islands will fall silent at 11am today (Thursday 11 November) to mark Remembrance Day.

Services will take place at memorials across the Bailiwicks to remember those who lost their lives in conflict.

The Jersey Branch of the Royal British Legion will be continuing to sell poppies and poppy-related memorabilia from its pop-up shop on King Street, with proceeds going towards supporting members of the armed forces community locally.

In Guernsey, a bronze plaque will be unveiled and dedicated in St Martins, featuring the names of those parishioners who fought and died during the Second World War.

The short ceremony will be attended by the Bailiff, the Dean of the Douzaine and the Senior Constable.
