The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - NEWS -

Pipers across the globe will play to hon­our the fallen at this year’s Ar­mistice com­mem­o­ra­tion.

To­mor­row, 1,000 pipers start the day’s com­mem­o­ra­tions with the tra­di­tional Scot­tish lament played at the end of bat­tle – Bat­tle’s O’er – at 6am.

At 6.55pm 1,000 bu­glers will sound the last post at First World War bea­cons across the UK and UK Over­seas Ter­ri­to­ries.

By 7pm 1,000 bea­cons will be lit and five min­utes later 1,000 cathe­drals and churches will ring their bells and 100 Bri­tish town criers will take to the streets to cel­e­brate the peace.
