World War 1 Centenary Commemorations

Military Parade in Colquhoun Square 2016Since 2014 the World War 1 Commemoration Steering Group played a central role in Argyll and Bute Council’s preparations for the national centenary commemoration of World War 1.

The group successfully promoted local and community engagement with its work, through the inclusion of representatives of community groups and local elected members, and by the establishment of local sub-groups which had been tasked with delivering one of a series of commemoration events.

To ensure that the contributions from the aforementioned groups and other individuals and groups were recorded for posterity, a commemorative booklet was compiled which illustrates a range of events that were held to mark the 100 year commemoration of World War 1.

This booklet is now available for download (15MB)
