Polish Remembrance 2018

Polish Remembrance 2018

- 19/11/2018

On Sunday 18 November 2018 Mrs Janet Bowen, Lord-Lieutenant for Ross and Cromarty, attended Invergordon to lay a wreath at the Polish War Memorial, along with many others.

This follows a tradition of remembering the Polish fallen a week after the UK Remembrance Sunday. The war memorial is sited on the outskirts of Invergordon next to the old camp for those Poles who were unable to return home at the conclusion of the Second World War having fought for the Allies.

The service is bi-lingual and a notable feature is the singing of the Polish national anthem to the pipes.

The service was attended, amongst many others by local councillors, the area's MSP and MP, the Polish Consul from Edinburgh and one surviving veteran.
