Provost Douglas Dodds laid a wreath at the Cenotaph alongside councillors and local dignitaries, following a service at the Church of the Holy Rude, as people from across the Council area gathered to honour the memories of those who lost their lives in conflicts past and present.
The war memorial on Corn Exchange Road was designed by Stirling architect George R Davidson and unveiled in October 1922 by Field Marshall Earl Haig. The Cenotaph was among many monuments across the country to be renovated in 2014-15 with funding from the War Memorials Trust’s Centenary Memorials Restoration Fund.
Provost Dodds said: “This was a deeply moving service which I was honoured to be part of.
“This special 100-year anniversary underlines how important it is for us to keep close to our hearts the memory of those who gave their lives, as the conflicts in which they served move further into the distance.
“Those from our communities who served and continue to serve in the armed forces remain in my thoughts as we remember the fallen.”
