Service and sacrifice honoured on Remembrance Sunday

In suitably gloomy and overcast weather, Arran residents turned out in numbers to pay their respects in the national day of remembrance on the second Sunday in November, the Sunday closest to November 11, which is the anniversary of the end of World War one in 1918.

As we approach the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War the people of Pirnmill have ensured that names of the men from the area who fell in the war will live for evermore and that future generations will be able to go on remembering them in the years to come.
