Tribute to the fallen
Hamilton paid its respects to those who made the ultimate sacrifice, as the town prepares to commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War.
The local branch of the Royal British Legion Scotland organised a Remembrance service on Saturday.
It had to be moved from the top cross to the banqueting hall at South Lanarkshire Council’s headquarters because of the weather.
Veterans were joined by the younger generation of Sea and Army Cadets as they remembered those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
The Lord Lieutenant of Lanarkshire, Lady Susan Haughey, and South Lanarkshire Provost Ian Mcallan were also in attendance.
Meanwhile, the town is preparing for other events that will mark the end of the 1914-1918 conflict (see page 25).
