Legion remembers

THE Royal British Legion Scotland’s Angus and Perthshire Area Festival of Remembrance is to be held in the Caird Hall, Dundee, on Saturday, November 5.

“This year we mark 90 years since the founding of the Royal British Legion Scotland – nine decades of caring for ex-servicemen and women and their dependants,” explains Col. Alasdair Maclean, festival convener.

“To help us remember and celebrate, we have the Central Band of The Royal British Legion Scotland, The Robert Wiseman Vale of Atholl Juvenile Pipe Band, and the Fife and Tayside District Sea Cadet Band, plus traditional community singing and an ecumenical Act of Remembrance.”

Tickets are available from the City Box Office, Dundee, by phone on 01382-434940, or online at citybox@dundeecity.gov.uk; and any profits from the evening go to PoppyScotland, or as older readers may prefer to call it, the Earl Haig Fund Scotland.
