Provost Opens Girvan War Memorial Anniversary Service

South Ayrshire Provost Iain Campbell opened the service to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Girvan War Memorial on Saturday 22 October.

The memorial by Ayr-born architect James A Morris was unveiled in 1922 and features the names of 156 men from Girvan who died in the First World War. The service included readings, bagpipe songs and hymns that were taken from the programme of the original dedication of the monument.
