Many parts of the world are remembering the 90th anniversary of the 1918 armistice which ended World War I.
Millions of soldiers fought and died during the four-year conflict between Germany and the Allies, which became known as the Great War.
In France, President Nicolas Sarkozy and wife Carla Bruni attended ceremonies in Paris before moving on to the trenches at Verdun, where some of the bloodiest fighting took place.
Earlier, in Manila, in the Philippines, servicemen marked Veterans' Day at the American cemetery.
Just a handful of World War I veterans remain alive today.
One of them, Bill Stone, 108, laid a wreath at an Armistice Day commemoration ceremony at the Cenotaph in London.
British Prime Minister Gordon Brown (C) and Defence Minister John Hutton (Centre R) also attended the ceremony in London.
Former soldiers gathered in Edinburgh's Garden of Remembrance to honour those who gave their lives serving their country.
