Commemoration of the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War

WW1 Inverness mobilization

Across the country and around the world, events are taking place to recall the events of the outbreak of the First World War.

In Inverness,  civic service to remember the outbreak of the First World War will take place at the Old High Church, Church Street, at 2pm on Monday 4 August. Everyone is welcome to the service.

The reflective service will begin with the lighting of a memorial candle by the Provost of Inverness, and will include psalms, hymns, readings and prayers. The Inverness Handbell Ringers will play ‘In Flanders Fields’, music set by composer by Sandra Winter to a poem by John McRae.

Following the service the memorial candle will be taken in procession to St Andrew’s Cathedral, where it will burn until the centenary of the end of the war.
