"We must never forget those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service of their country," said Mrs Butler. "We should remember those who are still risking their lives today in theatres of conflict such as Afghanistan.
"Armistice Day acts as a reminder to us all about these sacrifices and that is why the National Assembly for Wales works in partnership with the Royal British Legion."
