Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - FRONT PAGE -

This week­end the re­gion will join with The Royal Bri­tish Le­gion Scot­land and Pop­pyscot­land to mark ser­vice and sac­ri­fice made dur­ing the First World War. Remembrance Day on Sun­day falls on the 100th an­niver­sary of the end of the War with the sign­ing of the Ar­mistice. It was the day when the guns fell silent.

Fight­ing on land, sea and air came to an end at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month af­ter four years of con­flict.

As well as pa­rades and wreath-lay­ings in towns and vil­lages across the area, bea­cons will be lit as part of a chain across the UK.

There will also be church ser­vices, com­mem­o­ra­tion ex­hi­bi­tions and many arts and mu­si­cal events.

Here we look at just some of the events that will be taking place
