Armistice Day tribute in Brecon, Powys

Thousands of people have been paying tribute to those who have died in well known and lesser known acts of heroism and sacrifice during conflict.

Armistice Day commemorations will be marked with a two minute silence at 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.

Military bases, town halls and schools are among those also taking part.

Assembly Presiding Officer Rosemary Butler AM led the silence from the Senedd in Cardiff Bay.

Services were held in towns and cities around Wales remembering those who have fought in battle during World War One and conflicts since.

A dedicated memorial to 20 fallen soldiers from Minera near Wrexham has been unveiled, while in Flintshire, a group of college students are recreating the poppy field which is on display at the Tower of London.
