Following the silence, wreaths will be laid at the park’s war memorial and music will be provided by the West of Scotland Military Wives Choir.

Veterans will participate in a short march that will leave from the roadway above the Park Pavilion at 10.30am and will head to the ceremony.

All veterans wishing to join the procession are welcome, and are asked to join the assembly at 10.15am.

In the event of persistent rain, the service will be held in the nearby Victoria Halls.
