Trib­ute to the fallen

Hamilton Advertiser - - WWI 100 YEARS ON - Staff re­porter

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).
