Remembrance Sunday 2017


I was pleased to attend the annual Hearts Remembrance Sunday vigil at Haymarket.

The ceremony was particularly moving as we are now in the centenary of the Great War, where so many died, including so many Hearts and Hibs players and supporters in McCrae’s Battalion.


I also attended the Poppy Scotland reception in Parliament with the Secretary of State for Scotland


As we are commemorating those who lost their lives during the Great War I hosted a debate in Westminster Hall on the life and legacy of Scottish doctor and suffragist, Elsie Inglis.

We will remember them.
