Christmas Truce between World War One troops re-enacted

An unlikely truce between Royal Welsh Fusiliers and German troops during World War One has been re-enacted 100 years after it happened.

The event on the French-Belgian border commemorated the troops who met in no-man's-land in 1914.

The grandsons of the commanding officers of the Welsh and German troops were also present and exchanged beer and plum pudding.

Teams from the 1st Royal Welsh and German Army later played a football match.
