Poppyscotland is calling on East Lothian residents to support an ambitious UK campaign to honour more than one million men and women who died during the First World War.

Every Man Remembered aims to keep alive the memory of the 1,117,077 servicemen and women from across the Commonwealth who died between 1914 and 1918.

Poppyscotland’s head of fundraising, Colin Flinn, said: “Poppyscotland was there in the aftermath of the First World War to help those injured and left destitute and we must be here now to help those still affected by war.

“Every Man Remembered is a unique tribute that will help the living as well as remember the fallen and it reinforces our commitment to supporting members of the Armed Forces community in Scotland today.

“We hope that over the next four years every single man and woman who died will be individually commemorated.”

Members of the public are invited to visit www.everymanremembered.org to commemorate someone to whom they have a connection or to find someone who has no-one to commemorate them.
