Coronavirus restrictions may have curtailed the normal ceremony at Edinburgh’s Poppy Garden but the Pandemic won't prevent us remembering the fallen.

Poppy Scotland head of fundraising Gordon Michie said: “We normally have about 500 people, but we managed to make it poignant and special for the people who came.

We have got a one way system in place for volunteers laying wreaths.”

All required COVID measures will be observed by staff and volunteers on site.
