Saltcoats residents wore their poppies with pride as the town paid respect to the fallen on Remembrance Sunday.

The parade started from Bradshaw Street with members of the members of the Royal British Legion thanking the Masonic Hall for being open to serve teas.

Residents were also joined by the Brothers In Arms – a Scotland-wide motorcycle club for military veterans and those still serving– who rode down on their bikes to pay their respects.

Attendees then gathered at the Saltcoats War Memorial where wreaths were laid with flags flown as all remembered the Armed Forces, and their families, from the UK and the Commonwealth.

The Saltcoats, Ardrossan and Stevenston Royal British Legion Scotland branch president Paul Coffey said: “Although Remembrance is 365 days a year, national focus is based around Armistice Day, the 11th day of the 11th month and the anniversary of the end of the Great War which is actually commemorated on the second Sunday of November.

“Every year is special when it comes to Remembrance but this year also see’s the 100th Anniversary of the Royal British Legion Scotland and the emergence of the Poppy as the symbol of Remembrance and our support for those who serve, have served and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.”

He added: “For veterans its also 100 years since the NAAFI came into existence and every veteran has at least one story relating to the NAAFI!

"Thanks go to everyone who attended to pay their respects, contributed to the poppy appeal and the hard work of the the Saltcoats, Ardrossan and Stevenston Royal British Legion Scotland."
