Maybole remembered its war dead again on Tuesday, November 11 with an Armistice Day service at the Greenside at 11am.


The service was led by Fr Stephen McGrattan and was attended by the Maybole Branch of the Royal British Legion Scotland and several other local organisations and all schools. Piper Scott Barrie played the lament and Alex Kelly recited Binyon’s Lines “They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them.”


He also recited the Kohima Epitaph “When you go home, tell them of us and say: 'for your tomorrow we gave our today'”.


Wreaths were laid by George Taylor and Janetta Rodgers prior to poppy crosses being laid by members of local organisations and the public.
