Voices will tell his story

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - THE WEEKEND TICKET -

The ex­pe­ri­ences of a lo­cal fam­ily dur­ing the First World War will be told in an Ar­mistice centenary com­mem­o­ra­tion at an An­nan church to­mor­row.

St Andrew’s mem­bers have re­searched the life of a man fea­tured in one of the build­ing’s stained glass win­dows.

The small group of ac­tors and mu­si­cians in Voices will tell of Dr David W Sin­clair, who lived in John­stone Street and fought in the Great War.

They will use let­ters home to his mum dur­ing the poignant event, which will also fea­ture mu­sic, im­ages and po­etry. It starts at 7pm.

Tom Lang­lands, one of the peo­ple be­hind Voices, said: “We sin­gled out David Sin­clair be­cause it is such an in­ter­est­ing story.”

Some parish­ioners plan to visit his grave in Bel­gium next year.
