WREXHAM residents fell silent on Tuesday to mark the 90th anniversary of the end of the First World War.
The Royal British Legion once again organised a two minute silence outside the Old Library in Queen's Square.
At 11am a wartime air raid siren sounded, and a bugler sounded the Last Post followed by the silence. A bugler then played Reveille.
It followed a special Remembrance Day service on Sunday at Memorial Bodhyfryd attended by the Mayor of Wrexham, Cllr David Griffiths.
It was one of many services taking place across the region which saw servicemen and women past and present united with members of the Royal British Legion, merchant seamen, civic leaders, cadet and scouting bodies and members of the public, to pay tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
First Minister Rhodri Morgan was among those laying wreaths at the Welsh National War Memorial in Cathays Park, Cardiff, during a special service.
Rhodri Morgan said: “We must never forget the sacrifice they made and we will continue to honour them on this and every Remembrance Sunday.
“If anyone should doubt that Remembrance Sunday still retains its relevance to our modern society, they should be reminded that many of the service personnel on active duty in Afghanistan and Iraq today are under 30.
“With every passing year, there are fewer surviving veterans that can remind us in person of the horrors of the First World War trenches.”
