Scores of people gathered at the memorial to Titanic violinist John Law Hume and steward Thomas Mullin in Dumfries, both of whom were born in the town.

They died along with more than 1,500 other passengers and crew.

The commemoration was organised by the Dumfries branch of the Merchant Navy Association and included a march by the Dumfries band as well as a wreath laying ceremony.

The chairman of the Dumfries branch of the Merchant Navy Association Arthur Murphy said he was pleased with the amount of people who had attended the ceremony.

He paid tribute to the two young men who died on the ship.
