The Wick RBLS Pipe Band lead the annual Remembrance Sunday parade, followed by representatives from the Royal British Legion Scotland (Wick Branch) and various military and youth organisations within the county.

During the service at the War Memorial, the  Pipe Major of the band  plays the haunting and poignant lament, Flo'ers o' the Forest, after which the parade makes its way to Wick Old Parish Church for the traditional remembrance service. The band forms up once more, to lead the parade past the Town Hall, where the salute is taken. The parade then continues, making its way over Bridge Street, and past the War Memorial. The parade is officially dismissed, and to a continual, single drum beat, the band marches on its own through the town centre, back to the Band hall.

Sad though the occasion is, it is always heartening to see so many people, young and old, attending the proceedings.

As always, Wick RBLS Pipe Band is proud to be a part of the Armistice Day events.
