Its safe to say Remembrance Day in 2020 is a little different. With restrictions on not being able to meet in groups of more than 6 people, the town’s residents and organisations have had to offer their individual, separate support in their own time. But what a response!
The cemetery area around the War Memorial looks stunning this year with poppies wrapped up through the trees, with thanks to Bonnie Blantyre.
The display provided by Gavin Watson Printers of the soldiers in silhouette looks very touching, almost like the soldier’s presence is right there. I noticed also further names have been added to the plaques, presumably by families of more Blantyre people who died in the wars.
As always, I’ve placed a wreath at both the High Blantyre Cemetery and Auchentibber War memorials, on behalf of us all. Remembering all those souls who sacrificed so much.
