THE National Assembly for Wales is joining the Royal British Legion in marking Armistice Day at the Senedd.
Today the traditional two minutes' silence was to be led by Presiding Officer Rosemary Butler AM, Deputy Presiding Officer David Melding AM, and Wales Manager of the Royal British Legion, Phil Jones.
Proceedings were to begin at 10.55am with the reading of the Exhortation in the Neuadd with two minutes' silence at 11am.
The Senedd will fall silent again at 11am on Sunday, to mark the eleventh hour, of the eleventh day of the eleventh month.
"We must never forget those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service of their country," said Mrs Butler. "We should remember those who are still risking their lives today in theatres of conflict such as Afghanistan.
"Armistice Day acts as a reminder to us all about these sacrifices and that is why the National Assembly for Wales works in partnership with the Royal British Legion."
