Paying her respects to those honoured by Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday, Welsh Liberal Democrat Leader Jane Dodds MS said:

“Today and on Sunday we pay tribute to all who made the ultimate sacrifice to protect our country during its darkest hours.

“Their sacrifice has allowed us to live in a society based on both freedom and liberty.

“Today we think of not only the lives that were lost, but of the wish of survivors of both World Wars that we should strive to build a world free of war and violence.

“This year as we remember those who fought for freedom and liberty during previous conflicts, many of us will also be thinking of the brave men and women of Ukraine, who are at this very moment standing in face of tyranny with winter approaching.

“We remain ever thankful to those who stood to protect our country. We will remember them.”
