Peter Davis and his wife, Lucy, from Blarnafoldach, pictured, carried on an almost 40-year traditional of attending the afternoon Remembrance Sunday service at the Commando Memorial.

There may have been no formal remembrance services and only a few people around this year due to coronavirus restrictions but they still managed to pay their respects and share a few memories.

Mr Davis spent 15 years in the Royal Marines, part of which was a year in Aden during the withdrawl of Britain from the then colony.

In 2018 he gave a talk in St Andrews Church to commemorate the 100 years since the end of the First World War and those killed in the conflict and who are commemorated in the church. Photograph: Iain Ferguson, alba.photos (See Page 12 for more remembrance Day photographs).
