Poppy crosses were today laid at war graves in Carlisle’s cemetery ahead of Sunday’s Remembrance day ceremonies.
Vetrans and the city’s mayor gathered to pay tribute to those men who lost their lives in battle.
Andy Burn reports.
Poppy crosses are due to be laid at the Newer War Memorial in Carlisle later this morning.
The mayor of Carlisle will attend a short service at the cemetery to see the last of 400 poppy crosses laid at war memorials across the city.
Collection tins for the Poppy appeal have been stolen from three hotels in the Scottish Borders.
The thefts have been condemned by police who are trying to determine if the same person is responsible for each theft.
The thefts happened at the Townhouse, the George and Abbotsford and Burt's hotel in High Street Melrose over 5 days. A spokesman for Lothian and Borders Police said:
Borders MSP John Lamont marked Remembrance Sunday by taking part in a ceremony in his home town of Coldstream.
Two hundred people attend a remembrance service at the Maxwelltown War Memorial in Dumfries.
