Remembering those who made sacrifice
What does Poppy Day mean to you?
Remembrance Sunday saw millions of people pay tribute to the men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
The News visited East Kilbride town centre to ask shoppers what Remembrance Day means to them.
Iris Sandlan from Westwood said: “It’s a very important day in the calendar because these people went out and put their life on the line so we could have peace and freedom.
“Veterans should get more help with the things they have seen and the trauma they’ve been through. I really do believe it should never be forgotten.”
Meanwhile, veteran Jim Marrs revealed he always raises a glass to his former comrades.
He said: “I served 22 years and lost a couple of good mates. I always remember them.
“There’s a few of us who are veterans and we always have a couple of halves in their memory.”
St Leonards man Bob Japp took time to reflect on those he lost during conflict.
He said: “My father, grandfather and uncles were all in the war. I lost my grandfather and I just missed being called up myself by a year.
“I’m always thinking of them so it means a lot to me.”
Lisa Mills from East Mains said: “There’s not as much as there should be for veterans and I think they should get more financial support.
“People gave their lives for what we have now, so we should always remember them.”
