Small white crosses are
The dedication of two poppy beds in Cambuslang brought to an end days of remembrance in the Rutherglen and Cambuslang area.
Rev Dr Leslie Milton, of Cambuslang Parish Church, took the service near the Miner’s Wheel statue on Hamilton Road.
Depute Provost Pam Clearie and Councillor Russell Clearie, who played a key role in making the tribute happen, were also there with other elected representatives and pupils from all eight Cambuslang schools and exservicemen.
The two flower beds are shaped like massive poppies while small white crosses were also planted.
A two-minute silence was held at 11am - exactly 96 years since the Great War ended.
The flower beds had come after community pressure for a permanent tribute to those who died.
Alex Black, who was instrumental in getting the memorial put in place, said: “The service was great and we got a great wee turnout.
“There were a few ex-servicemen and it was really nice to see them. My son is eight and he was there, so we had people from eight to their 80s and to see that made me really happy. ”
On Remembrance Sunday itself, Rutherglen and Cambuslang paid tribute to those who gave their lives for their country.
Church services across the two towns held a two-minute silence at 11am to mark the armistice that ended World War I in 1918.
Afterwards, locals headed to the Cenotaph in Rutherglen and war memorial at Cambuslang Park for special ceremonies.
At Rutherglen, there was a reminder that we remember not just those who died in two world wars when the name of RFN Charles McLaren, who was the killed during the Aden Emergency in 1967, was added to the list of fallen.
