A wreath was also laid by Provost Douglas McAllister, who led the tributes on behalf of West Dunbartonshire Council on Remembrance Sunday at Clydebank Town Hall.The children of Christie Park Primary School held their annual ceremony in Christie Park at 11am on Armistice Day, where more than 200 pupils planted wooden crosses at the Cenotaph.Naval personnel at Faslane took a moment to reflect and remember on Armistice Day.In the morning, military and civilian workers at the site gathered at St Mungo’s Naval Base Church for the annual Remembrance service.Led by the naval base chaplaincy team, senior officers laid wreaths to commemorate the sacrifice of those who have died during conflicts.Following the service, personnel headed to the base’s waterfront where there was another Remembrance-themed event – the official naming of “DMS Poppy”, King’s Harbour Master Clyde’s newest pilot vessel.Ian White, King’s Harbour Master (KHM) Clyde, said: “It’s fitting that we gather here on Armistice Day to name our new vessel DMS Poppy.“While she is operating on the Dockyard Port, hopefully for many years to come, she will be a reminder to all of the bravery and sacrifice of those in our armed forces.”
