Remembrance Day services
Services took place throughout Wales
On the last Remembrance Day this century many people throughout Wales observed a two-minute silence.
Events took place all over the country to remember the dead of conflicts throughout the century and to try to ensure its significance lives on in the new millennium.
Many gathered to pay tribute to the war dead at the National War Memorial in Cardiff civic centre.
But there were many events throughout Wales.
In west Wales a wreath was laid by eight-year-old Ukranian orphan Svetlana Bondarenko.
She is recovering from life-saving heart surgery paid for from funds donated by the people of Milford Haven.
Second World War guns sounded over Newport to mark the 11th hour as wreathes were laid at the town's cenotaph.
French sailors of the First World War were honoured at their burial place in a Cardiff cemetery.
The Royal Welch Fusiliers led tributes at their memorial in Wrexham, north Wales.
On Armistice Day itself on Friday, schoolchildren took part in a special service at the Museum of Welsh Life near Cardiff.
In Wrexham in north Wales the only working wartime air-raid siren signalled the start of the silence and many poignant memories.
