Caithness Remembers


Remembrance Day parade outside the Royal British Legion Scotland branch in Thurso


Remembrance Sunday marked the one hundredth anniversary of the armistice agreement which brought the end of the First World War. Across the length and breadth of the country, across the Commonwealth and allied countries people marked the end of war and paused to remember the fallen, the injured and those who returned. Cllr Mackie, who attended the services in Thurso said "I am always moved on Remembrance Day, there is no greater sacrifice than one can give but to give themselves for their country. Thousands, far younger than me, paid that sacrifice and it is so encouraging that our town has come out to show their gratitude to service woman of the past and the present". "I would like to put thank the British Legion for all their work to make this happen and for their work all round the year, the Reverend Johnston for his taking of the silence and Reverend Malcolm for the beautiful service at St. Peters and St. Andrew's afterwards."
