Wales commemorates 100 years since the end of the First World War

Wales fell silent today to mark 100 years since the end of the First World War.

A series of events are taking place up and down the country for the centenary of the Armistice.

Wales' national observance of Remembrance Sunday took place in Cardiff.

The National Service of Remembrance gives us an opportunity to reflect on the sacrifices service men and women have made to ensure our freedom today. This year's event will be particularly poignant as we mark 100 years since the end of the First World War.

Our thoughts are with those who have lost loved ones in all conflicts and also with those armed forces personnel who are currently serving to protect us.

This Armistice Day we take the opportunity to not only pause and remember those who served and scarified in the First World War, but all those who have fallen in the service of our country in the hundred years since. It is important we never forget the contribution and sacrifices of our past heroes but we must also look forward with hope for our Armed Forces community of today.
