Former servicemen campaign for war memorial
An 85-year-old war veteran is leading a camping to stop the Moffat war memorial being surrounded by parking spaces.
Billy Duncan is against an application lodged with Dumfries and Galloway Council requesting twelve parking spaces to be assigned around the memorial.
Mr Duncan believes that the parking spaces will restrict the ability for armed forces parades and is highly disrespectful to fallen soldiers.
