Lest We Forget

Remembrance Day memorial at Gourock

Rembrance Day Memorial

10 November 2022

This Sunday, 13 November, is Remembrance Sunday when the nation takes a minute to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women in the two World Wars and later conflicts.

Traditionally, Home Fix Scotland, River Clyde Homes' repairs and maintenance contractor, lay a wreath at the prominent raised flower bed at the Eastern View tower block in Gourock but this year they have created an eye-catching memorial that will remain in place for a couple of weeks.

Derek Robertson, Environmental Manager, said: “Our team is always keen to contribute to the Inverclyde community in any way they can. They have done a terrific job for Remembrance Sunday, which is always such a poignant day. The comments from the public have been very positive. I would like to thank all those who contributed to its creation, particularly our workshop joiner Jim Willison who carried out the wood work with Robert Ritchie for his initial sketch of the soldier.”
