Cornwall is paying tributes to our troops, past and present.
The Duchy is falling silent in an act of remembrance.
Justin Smith from Blackwater is a veteran of Iraq and Bosnia. He has told Pirate FM how he saw a friend killed in front of him and how that will always stay with him, "We were in Basra doing an all round defence of a university complex. There was a lone sniper and my mate got killed from that. At the time it happened you don't think of the after effects, you just get on with the job in hand. It's only when you return things start coming to the surface.
"There are thousands of people who lost friends and colleagues. Not just those who have gone, it;s the ones who are here still who haven't got all their limbs. We've still got to remember what they've done, what I've done and not let their memories be forgotten."
More than a thousand Marines, Sappers and Gunners from 3 Commando Brigade are parading through Plymouth.
It is to mark their return from Afghanistan. They are due to pay their respects as the Last Post plays on the Hoe.
Ten year old Gemma is marking the two minutes silence at Treleigh Primary School. She said, "Even if it was ages ago you should still remember it because they were fighting for our country. They have given up their lives to fight for us and I think they're really brave. It is really emotional and, sitting there thinking about it, you feel really bad because they have been fighting for you and now they've lost their life."
