A TWO-minute silence will be held in George Square on Sunday to remember members of the armed forces who fought and died in conflicts worldwide.

Lord Provost Eva Bolander will lead the Remembrance Sunday ceremony with the Moderator of Glasgow Presbytery Rev Ian Galloway leading the prayers.

They will be joined by Deputy First Minister John Swinney and representatives of the Army, Royal Navy, the RAF, Police Scotland Deputy Chief Constable Iain Livingston and Iain Bushell, Deputy Chief Officer Scottish Fire and Rescue.

Representatives from Legion Scotland, serving military, clergy and others from civic life will also attend.

A Guard of Honour will be provided by the 52nd Lowland, 6th Battalion of the Royal Regiment of Scotland.

Music will be provided by the Highland and Lowland Bands of the Royal Regiment of Scotland and Glasgow Youth Choir.

Ms Bolander said: "Remembrance Sunday is a day for reflection and gratitude for those who gave their lives in conflict to preserve our freedom.

"Glasgow owes its military and veterans a great debt. We are proud to remember those who fell and to support our serving military."

Members of the public wishing to attend and pay their respects are asked to gather in George Square at 10.30am.

On Armistice Day on Saturday November 11, Ms Bolander will attend a service in George Square organised by Legion Scotland which will observe a two minute silence at 11am to mark the end of World War 1.
