Moray residents with links to World War I are being asked to take part in a special commemorative event in Edinburgh.
The region has been allocated 94 places for a Sunday morning service at Edinburgh Castle on August 10.
The event, organised by the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, will mark the beginning of the official Scottish programme of commemoration for the 100th anniversary of the conflict.
Spaces have already been reserved for veterans and the armed forces so it is hoped that Moray’s allocation will be taken up by civilians who have a link with the events of 1914 to 1918, whether on the battlefront or the home front.
The Lord Lieutenant of Moray, Lt Col Grenville Johnston said said: “World War One touched every family in the country in one way or another and many hundreds of men from this area made the ultimate sacrifice.
“Despite the fact that 100 years have passed, that sacrifice is not forgotten nor will it be.
“Those who served their country came from all walks of life and we would like those people from Moray attending the service to be equally representative of the local community.
“There will be many people who have as association with World War One, perhaps as descendants of servicemen or who have some other connection, and we would like to hear from them.”
Moray Council convener Stuart Cree said: “I’m sure there are many interesting stories to be told and we would like to hear them.
“Moray has been allocated sufficient spaces to allow people to bring along a partner or friend, and we have been asked to ensure that we have a cross-section of the local community.”
Applications can be made in writing to the convener at Moray Council, High Street, Elgin IV30 1BX, or by e-mailing email@example.com by June 20.
