Press Release

Swinney pays tribute to victims of conflict

Publised date : 09 Nov 2018

Perthshire North MSP, Mr John Swinney, has today paid tribute to those who have lost their lives in conflict. 

Mr Swinney made the remarks shortly after laying a wreath at Perth’s Garden of Remembrance.

Commenting, Mr Swinney said:

“I was both honoured and humbled to take part in Perth’s annual Dedication of the Garden of Remembrance. 

“Every year, remembrance services provide an opportunity for us to reflect upon the extraordinary courage displayed by ordinary men and women. 

“This year is particularly poignant, with Sunday marking 100 years to the day since the signing of the armistice that ended the Great War.

“As the years pass, it is important that the sacrifice of those touched by conflict is never forgotten. Rather, it is our responsibility to honour their memory and ensure that we never take for granted the life and liberty we enjoy. To that end, I am sure that the people of Perthshire will take pause over the next few days to pay tribute to those who fell or were injured in war.”
