This year’s Remembrance at Kimelford Church started with a gathering around the war memorial, led by Mary Sandilands.

After the two minute silence wreaths were laid by Donald Smith, crew manager of
Kilmelford Community Fire Station and Major Donald Campbell-Baldwin,
late A&SH. Jim Robb was the piper and also present were representatives of Kilmelford Fire Station.

There followed a service inside the church, taken by Georgina Dalton. She read the prayers written by her father, in the absence of the Regimental Chaplain, while serving in the Royal Artillery early in 1943, for a service on a clifftop overlooking the Mediterranean at Messina.
