Remembrance ceremonies will be held across East Lothian on Sunday.

Councillors from all parties will attend services and wreath laying ceremonies across the county and pay their respects.

Roderick Urquhart, Lord-Lieutenant of East Lothian said: “It is both pleasing and very important that communities in East Lothian, and across the United Kingdom, can once again take part in Remembrance Sunday Services, and the laying of wreaths at War Memorials. Remembrance Sunday brings the county and the Nation together, to remember the service and sacrifice of all those who fought and died in the First and Second World Wars, and other conflicts. This year also marks the 100th anniversary since the Nation’s Remembrance traditions first came together, back in 1921.”

East Lothian Provost Councillor John McMillan added: "It is important that we all remember in our own way and pay our respects to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, not only in the Great War but in the Second World War and in conflicts since. In doing so we also remember and pay tribute to our veterans, past and present, who contribute so much to society and to whom we owe so much.”
