Pembrokeshire paused this morning to remember those who have lost their lives in service to their country.

Armistice Day 2016 was marked by respectful gatherings at war memorials in towns and villages throughout the county as the two minutes' silence was held.

In Tenby, D Day veteran Gordon Prime, who is the president of the town's branch of the Royal British Legion, read Binyon's words 'For the Fallen' during the ceremony at the cenotaph.

Wreaths were laid by the mayor of Tenby, Councillor Laurence Blackhall, on behalf of the town council and the people of Tenby and by a Tenby Air Training Corps cadet on behalf of the Royal British Legion.

During the wreath-laying, a bagpipe lament was played by Graham Price, while trumpeter Peter Greenway sounded The Last Post.

A service was also held at St mary's Church Fishguard, featuring children from several local schools.

In Haverfordwest school children were invited by the mayor, Cllr Alan Buckfield, to lay wreaths at the cenotaph.

Pupils from Fenton School, St Marks, Tasker Milward and Portfield all took part in a service led by the Reverand Nicholas Cale.

There was a large turnout in Freshwater West where a service was held at the memorial to the servicemen who died in the sinking of two Landing Craft Guns Ls 15-16 and those who went to their aid from HMS Rosemary on April 25, 1943.
