A time to re­flect on the great­est sac­ri­fice

The Oban Times - - YOUR VIEWS LETTERS -

This Sun­day sees the 100th an­niver­sary of the guns fall­ing silent at the ces­sa­tion of the First World War.

As we re­port to­day, there are many ded­i­ca­tions, ser­vices and cer­e­monies planned across Oban and Ar­gyll, an area whose sons were among the many who fought and died in the hor­rific con­flict.

This year’s com­mem­o­ra­tions are given added poignancy as it is the centenary of the Ar­mistice.

We would en­cour­age ev­ery­one to fall silent at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month as a mark of re­spect to all those who made the ul­ti­mate sac­ri­fice.
