NEYLAND residents and dignitaries remembered the fallen at the war memorial today, Sunday, as they marked 100 years since the end of the First World War.

MP Stephen Crabb, Mayor Simon Hancock and artist and veteran Barry John were among those to lay poppy wreaths at the town memorial.

Milford Haven Town Band provided a moving accompaniment to the service, with more than 200 people coming out to mark the occasion.

Among them was 94-year-old former commando Ted Owens, who was born in Neyland.

Mr Owens serving during the Second World War, including during D- Day, Walcheren and the Ardennes.

Local schoolchildren also laid down poppy crosses, and took part in the parade.

Cllr Hancock said "The service was remarkably well-attended, the largest I have ever seen, especially the number of young people present.

"The centenary of the Armistice was reflected in a moving and thought-provoking service.

"Thank you to everyone who attended."
