Almost 50 people people braved the bitter wind to pay tribute to West Kintyre’s fallen servicemen.

They gathered at Glenbarr’s war memorial as Marilyn Shedden led a poignant ceremony on Armistice Day to remember all those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for their country, but in particular the 11 men who died 100 years ago in the First World War.

For more on the event, see page 15.
