HIS­TORY

Daily Record - - FRONT PAGE -

A GROUP of school­child­ren have built their own me­mo­rial to re­mem­ber the fallen on the 100th an­niver­sary of the end of World War I.

P7 pupils at Oak­wood Pri­mary School in Easter­house, Glas­gow, cre­ated a Re­mem­brance gar­den, be­cause the hous­ing es­tate didn’t have a spe­cial place to com­mem­o­rate the dead from both world wars.

The chil­dren opened the gar­den yes­ter­day dur­ing a mov­ing cer­e­mony, which was at­tended by vet­er­ans and serv­ing per­son­nel.
