The Royal Navy marked Armistice Day on Monday 11th, with a short service at HM Naval Base Devonport, Plymouth.
The Reverend Bill Gates, Royal Naval chaplain at HMS Drake, conducted the service at the Boscawen memorial in Liberty Square where a wreath had been placed yesterday on Sunday.
All Service personnel and civilian employees were invited to attend to mark Armistice Day collectively.
Naval Base Commander Commodore Grame Little read a piece of prose from a speech by Theodore Roosevelt after an opening prayer. This was followed by a roll of honour read by Lieutenant Commander Andy McConochie listing serving Royal Naval, Royal Marines and Royal Fleet Auxiliary personnel who lost their lives over the last 12 months.
The Last Post was sounded by a lone bugler before the beginning of the two-minute silence was begun and ended by a gun salute.
