Borders MSP John Lamont marked Remembrance Sunday by taking part in a ceremony in his home town of Coldstream.
“We owe a huge debt to all of those who have fought so bravely for our country over the years. Some have made the ultimate sacrifice to provide us with safety and protection and it is only proper that we mark these efforts each and every year.
“I sincerely hope that everyone in the Borders found time to honour their memory, whether through attending a ceremony or by observing the two minutes silence. When these men and women have given so much to us it is the least that we can do.
