Bute fell silent for two minutes on Monday morning, in memory of those who died in, or in conflicts since, the Great Way, on Armistice Day.
A service at Rothesay’s Cenotaph, led by Rev Michael Evans and attended by the Bute branch of the Royal British Legion of Scotland, as well as members of the public, paid tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
The short service included the two minutes silence, and the immortal words from Robert Laurence Binyon’s poem ‘For the Fallen’:
“They shall not grow 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.”
