The 96th Anniversary

Commemoration Service

Each year at 0730 hours the Friends of Lochnagar hold a short service of remembrance up at the cross.

Here are a few photos from the service in 2012 which despite the forecast managed to remain fine.

An interesting addition to the service this year was the idea of telling those around you why you were there and if it was for a casualty : whom. For the third year a ring was formed around the rim of the crater at the end of the proceedings.
