A DISPLAY of First World War memorabilia will go on show at the Geilston Hall in Cardross this weekend.

The exhibition, at the Geilston Hall in the village, will show the part played by Army, Navy and Royal Flying Corps and will include letters from the trenches found in the archives from nearby Geilston House, now held at the National Trust for Scotland’s headquarters in Edinburgh.

The exhibition will be open to the public from 2-4pm on Friday, November 9, and on Remembrance Sunday from 9.30-10.30am and after the parade at the village’s war memorial until 1.30pm.

If you have any photos, letters or medals from the Great War you’d like to see form part of the display, contact Patrick Trust to arrange collection and return.

As reported in last week’s Advertiser, commemorations in Cardross to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War will also include a lament played by piper Andrew Crockett at the village’s war memorial at 6am this Sunday – 100 years to the minute since the signing of the Armistice.

A piper will also play at 6am on Sunday at the war memorial in Garelochhead as part of the UK-wide ‘Battle’s Over – A Nation’s Tribute’ commemoration, which features events around the country throughout the day.
