French President Emmanuel Macron is today set to lead Armistice Day commemorations at Place Clemenceau in Paris.
The ceremony marks 102 years since the Armistice that ended World War I.
A tribute will also take place today remembering a boy hailed as the country’s youngest World War II hero who died when he was just six years old.
Marcel Pinte, known as “Quinquin”, carried messages under his shirt to leaders of the resistance against Nazi occupation.
His name is set to be inscribed on the war memorial in Aixe-sur-Vienne just west of Limoges in central France.
