Again, another memorial will be held in the city on Sunday, at Cavell Gardens War Memorial.

As a result Infirmary Bridge will be closed between 1pm-5pm, affecting pedestrians and cyclists.

Meanwhile, landmarks across Moray have been lit-up red each evening since November 8 as part of Poppyscotland’s Light Up Red campaign.

The Plainstones fountain on the High Street in Elgin will glow red every night until November 14. The Wolf of Badenoch sculpture will also be lit-up on Armistice Day to mark the annual appeal.

On Sunday at 11.05am, a service will be held at the St Giles Church on the High Street, including a wreath-laying.
