On the 100th anniversary of the beginning of the First World War, former military veterans and members of the public gathered at the War Memorial in Arbroath for the 11 p.m. service on Monday night.

The event was organised by the East of Scotland Royal Marines Association, with chairman Tim Donovan conducting the service, and reciting The Binyons Lines.

Royal British Legion treasurer Derek Scott read The Kohima Epitaph, while the bugler was former Royal Marine Jeff Smart.

To the left of the War Memorial 100 candles were lit to represent the 100 years since World War One started, while to the right of the memorial 786 candles were lit to represent the 786 military lives that were lost from the Arbroath and District Area.
