They fought for us - now we remember them.

Cornwall is falling silent at eleven o'clock, to mark the moment the First World War came to an end.

Thousands will pay tribute to our troops, past and present. You can join Pirate FM's tribute to the Duchy's fallen here.

TA Rifleman Graham Allen from Camborne lost a friend in Afghanistan.

He told us that he will never forget the moment he heard the news: "A bit of numbness really. I just thought, 'this isn't real'. But, obviously it is real. You never think it could happen, but it does unfortunately. You just have to use the skills you've been taught and hopefully those skills will keep you from that.

"I was out on the ground at the time. We came back to the base, drove in through the main gate and got asked to come over. We all got told together. You think, it could happen. You've got to think, it could happen."

Shaun Pascoe is a squadron leader at RAF St Mawgan.

He has worked on the medical emergency response team in Afghanistan: "There is so much support and so much goodwill and so much respect for everyone in the forces for what they do. But particularly those that we lose, because they pay that ultimate sacrifice."
