November 11, 2018 will mark 100 years since the end of fighting on land, sea and air in the First World War.

The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918 marked a victory for the Allies against Germany - and this year, we remember the sacrifice of those who lost their lives fighting for our freedom.

One of the deadliest conflicts in our history, millions died across the globe as a result of the Great War. More than 700,000 military deaths are thought to have taken place in the UK.

Hundreds of thousands of civilians also lost their lives.

Take a look at the South Tyneside Roll of Honour for Armistice 100 here.

In the run-up to Remembrance Sunday this weekend, we are commemorating the loss of life across the borough with the publication of a Roll of Honour for South Tyneside's fallen.
