Tiree Remembers

Saturday, 12th November
and Tiree pauses to remember and reflect
in an act of remembrance at the Memorial, Pier Road.


To remember those who have lived and died
in the service of others in two world wars
and in the many conflicts since then.
To remember also those who today
continue to suffer as a result of war
the widows, orphans and all who are bereaved;
the wounded, those who have lost limbs,
the deaf, dumb and blinded,
the shell shocked, the mentally ill,
the refugees without home, work and country.

The words of Binyon’s poem
We will remember them.
They shall not grow old
as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them,

nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the
and in the morning
We will remember them.
