Janet Waterworth asked me to put the following information on the blog regarding Remembrance Day:
"The Parish of Kilchoman, St. Kiaran's Church, Islay. We are having a service of Remembrance on the 11th November at the Military Grave Yard at Kilchoman starting at 11am. The Revd David Carruthers will be conducting the service and a contingent from HMS Vanguard will be attending.
"Transport for the infirm and elderly will be available out to the cemetery - please meet at the Kilchoman Church Car Park at 10.45 am. All welcome." For the latest info check out the north churches blog
For those not familiar with Remembrance day: Remembrance Day (also known as Poppy Day, Armistice Day or Veterans Day) is a memorial day observed in Commonwealth countries to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty since World War I. This day, or alternative dates, are also recognized as special days for war remembrances in many non-Commonwealth countries. Remembrance Day is observed on 11 November to recall the official end of World War I on that date in 1918.
