The Royal British Legion Scotland is proud to work in partnership with the City of Edinburgh Council, Historic Environment Scotland, Scottish National War Memorial and 51st Infantry Brigade and HQ Scotland to deliver this once in a life time event.

Collectively we will say ‘Thank You’ to all who served, sacrificed and changed our world by holding a procession that will leave from St Giles’ Cathedral, Edinburgh following Remembrance Sunday services in the Capital and make its way to the steps of the Scottish National War Memorial, Edinburgh Castle where a Service of Commemoration will be held.

The Memorial houses and displays the Rolls of Honour of Scots servicemen and women from all the Armed Services, the Dominions, Merchant Navy, Women's Services, Nursing Services and civilian casualties of all wars from 1914 to date.

The church service at St Giles’ Cathedral will commence c1130 following the annual parade and service that will take place at the Stone of Remembrance, City Chambers, Edinburgh. On the completion of the service attendees are invited to join the procession that will form up in West Parliament Square and at 1230 make its way to the Castle Esplanade and thereafter Crown Square Edinburgh Castle. The service will commence at 1315 and will be jointly conducted by the Reverend Neil Gardner MA BD, Minister of Canongate Kirk and the Reverend Dr Karen Campbell BD (Hons) MTh DMin, National Chaplain of the Royal British Legion Scotland. Wreaths will be laid during the service by invited representatives from the City of Edinburgh, the Armed Forces, the Scottish Government and UK Government, the Royal British Legion Scotland and the Scottish National War Memorial. Individuals and organisations wishing to lay wreaths may do so at the conclusion of the service.
