Photos from Armistice Service at Greenside, Maybole at 11am on 11th November, 2013

Armistice Day, held on 11 November every year, commemorates the signing of the armistice between the Allies and Germany at 11 am on 11 November 1918 - the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. Although hostilities continued in some areas, the armistice essentially brought an end to World War I. Maybole remembered its war dead with two services last week. On Thursday November 11 at 11am there was the traditional two minutes silence during a service led by Rev Arrick Wilkinson.

The first was on Remembrance Sunday, November 10. The second was the following day Monday November 11 at the Greenside at 11am. This service was attended by the Maybole Branch of the Royal British Legion Scotland and several other local organisations and all schools. The service was led by Rev Brian Hendrie, Scott Barrie played the lament and Alex Kelly recited Binyon's Lines and the Kohima Epitaph. After the service, wreaths and poppy crosses were laid.
