Two minutes of silence were observed today (Monday November 11th) in tribute to the fallen of all wars, after a day of Remembrance marked across the island yesterday.

A parade through Stornoway town centre yesterday lunchtime saw members of uniformed services, politicians and island residents united in tribute to those who have given their lives in the service of their country.

Meanwhile Sunday saw the laying of tributes at memorials across the Isles of Lewis and Harris, with many communities uniting for their own act of remembrance.

At Stornoway War Memorial, those laying wreaths included Nicolson Institute prefects Scott Maciver, Isla Budge, James Mutch, John Alasdair Bain, Jenny Campbell and Lucie Doig (pictured) who were accompanied by depute rector Mr J. Bain.

Also on parade at the memorial service were members of 1731 Isle of Lewis Squadron the Air Cadets, who laid their own wreath, and representatives of 7 Scots, whose wreath was laid by Sgt Tommy Stewart.
