An extremely blustery day on Bute didn’t deter the community from paying its respects to the island’s fallen servicemen and women on Remembrance Sunday.
The first of four services was led by Rev Owain Jones at Port Bannatyne’s war memorial at 10am, followed at 11am by Rothesay’s service at the Cenotaph. The traditional parade, led by Rothesay and District Pipe Band, included representatives from the armed forces, police and fire services and Red Cross, among others. Provost of Argyll and Bute Council, Len Scoullar, laid a wreath on behalf of Argyll and Bute Council.
The third service of the day took place at Kingarth’s war memorial at 1pm, led by Rev Drew Barrie, with the final service held at Cnoc-An-Raer at 3pm, where members of the community laid bouquets of flowers on the graves of the Midget Submariners buried there.
