HUNDREDS lined Alloa’s streets to pay their respects during the Wee County’s biggest Remembrance Day parade.

Alloa’s parade took place on Sunday, November 12, with the parade setting off from Bank Street and coming to an end at the War Memorial on Bedford Place.

Alloa Bowmar Pipe Band led the procession through the town, with many members of the public turning out to observe and remember.

They were met by the Lord Lieutenant Colonel Johnny Stewart, who was delighted to see so many people watch the parade, particularly across generations.

Speaking to the Advertiser, he said: “It was very well attended by both the young and the elderly on a glorious sunny day.

“It was a very moving ceremony, it was particularly good to have the cadets and so many veterans in the parade.”

The Bowmar Pipe Band set off at 10.45am through Alloa to reach Bedford Place, with the Clackmannan District Brass Band positioning themselves at the memorial for 10.45am.

The Lord Lieutenant’s salute took place at 10.55am before officials and wreath bearers took their positions facing the war memorial.

The Last Post was played by the bugler from the brass band at 10.59am, bringing the ceremony to a close.

Afterwards, Legion Scotland Clackmannanshire invited all participants and veterans to the Station on Primrose Place for refreshments and entertainment.

Meanwhile, across the Wee County, other Remembrance Day parades took place, drawing in crowds to pay their respects.

A procession took place throughout Alva, with the parade heading down Stirling Street on Sunday.

In Sauchie, they held their own Armistice Service, with a spokesperson for the Community Group thanking all in attendance.

They said: “Sauchie Community Group would like to thank all those who attended Sauchie’s Armistice Service.

“It was heart-warming to see so many wreaths laid by organisations, schools and businesses from across Sauchie and Clackmannanshire as we paid our respects on Remembrance Sunday.

“We would like to thanks everyone who attended, organised and supported us in coming together to remember and thank soldiers who defended our country in past conflicts and those still fighting for us today.

“Lest we forget.”
