Remembrance Sunday is the day we remember all those who have suffered or died in past conflicts around the world. To recognise this national occasion, The BBC has been showing a week of programmes based around the first-person testimonies of some of those who have served in the United Kingdom's armed forces.

This special edition of Remembrance Week features a collection of the most extraordinary stories from across the week. We follow a World War II veteran as he makes an emotional return to the beach in Normandy where he and his comrades landed in 1944. A British pilot describes how he thought he might never see his wife and children again when he was captured and tortured during the First Gulf War. In Wales, a heart-broken young woman describes the loss of her partner in Afghanistan.
