The anniversary of the World War One armistice - signed 95 years ago - has been marked in the UK with a two-minute silence.
Ceremonies have taken place at military bases, town halls, churches, schools, and at the National Memorial Arboretum in Alrewas, Staffordshire.
The Royal British Legion held its own event in London’ s Trafalgar Square.
Meanwhile, the Duke of Edinburgh has visited Belgium, scene of some of World War One’s deadliest battles.
This year, Armistice Day, which honours members of the armed forces who have died in that war and in all conflicts since, comes a day after Remembrance Sunday.
In commemorations across the UK:
Mairtin O Muilleoir became the first Sinn Fein Lord Mayor to attend an Armistice Day ceremony - at Belfast City Hall
Welsh Secretary David Jones struck a £5 Remembrance Day coin at the Royal Mint, Llantrisant, near Cardiff
At Glasgow’s Central Station, a new memorial stone dedicated to railway staff who died in wars was unveiled
In Wrexham, an air raid siren marked the start of the silence - a week ahead of A Company 3rd Battalion The Royal Welsh pulling out of the town’s Hightown barracks
In Staffordshire, 93-year-old Dorothy Ellis - thought to be the last surviving widow of a World War One veteran - joined senior representatives of the government and the armed forces at the National Memorial Arboretum
The arboretum’s Portland stone memorial is designed so that on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, a shaft of sunlight dissects its inner and outer walls, falling on a bronze wreath sculpture.
It is the nation’s tribute to more than 16,000 servicemen and women who have died on duty, or as a result of terrorism, since 1948.
The two-minute silence takes place annually at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month - the time the guns fell silent along the Western Front in 1918, and an armistice was declared.
It was first observed in November 1919 following a suggestion by an Australian journalist.
