Scottish War Blinded Remembrance Service 2013

Posted: 19/11/2013 | Scottish War Blinded

Scottish War Blinded members marked the commemoration of World War One armistice at the Linburn Centre on Monday 11 November 2013.

The programme of commemoration included a remembrance service in the gardens of the centre followed by a reading of World War One poetry by members.

The remembrance service was a sincere, emotive and poignant experience reflecting on the greater number of those who paid the ultimate price in service of their country. Presiding at the service was Rev John Shields MBE who provided a reading of the ‘Gettysburg Commemoration’ by General Joshua Chamberlain in 1889 describing the importance of remembrance followed by a two minute silence and laying of a commemorative wreath.

Following the service, members recited poetry including ‘Dulce et decorum est’, ‘The Call’ and ‘We shall Keep the Faith’ in a moving collective expression of respect for the fallen.

We thank everyone who attended.
