People across Wales are switching off their lights for an hour this evening and lighting a candle of remembrance.

The vigil is part of the Royal British Legion's Lights Out Campaign, inspired by the words of wartime foreign secretary Sir Edward Grey on the eve of the Great War.

The lamps are going out all over Europe; we shall not see them lit again in our life-time.

Sir Edward Grey
