Le­gion pa­rade salutes war dead

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - NEWS -

Blair­gowrie branch of Le­gion Scot­land is or­gan­is­ing the pa­rade and ser­vice of Re­mem­brance at the Wellmeadow this Sun­day.

They hope there will be a good turnout of peo­ple pay­ing their re­spects at the com­mem­o­ra­tions.

The pa­rade forms in Up­per Brown Street and marches off at 12.20pm down the High Street and Al­lan Street to the Wellmeadow, which it en­ters at the gate on Gas Brae.

The ser­vice and lay­ing of wreaths starts at 12.30pm and around 1pm the pa­rade will re­turn to Brown Street by the re­verse route.

This Satur­day there will also be a short cer­e­mony at the war me­mo­rial and the two-minute si­lence will be ob­served at 11am.

Or­gan­is­ers hope that busi­nesses and in­di­vid­u­als will stop for two min­utes at this time.

In the pe­riod lead­ing up to Re­mem­brance Sun­day the Le­gion will be putting col­lec­tion cans and pop­pies in many lo­cal busi­ness premises.

Ev­ery­thing that is col­lected is sent to Pop­pyscot­land in Ed­in­burgh.
