Nov. 11 Remembrance Sunday Commemorates Sacrifices Made in Cause of Freedom
The men and women who have sacrificed their lives in various wars over the decades for the cause of freedom will be honoured and remembered on Sunday, Nov. 11 as Remembrance Day ceremonies take place in Anstruther. The East Neuk has a strong history of its’ men and women serving in the military over the years, and it is them, along with the family and friends they left behind who all served this country in various ways, being commemorated.
Ladywalk House is the meeting point at 10:30 am on Sunday, Nov. 11 followed by a procession to Anstruther Church at 10:45 for a church service. After the service, church-goers make their way to the War Memorial in Anstruther Cemetery for the laying of wreaths, then return to the church to enable people to visit with each other, share memories, and enjoy a spot of tea to warm up with.
The 100th year anniversary of the end of World War I has been especially memorialised this year, with historical, military information and personal-history background pieces — still a source of fascination after all these years — appearing in newspapers and on television.
All are welcome to join this special memorial service.
