Seven youngsters representing the seven burghs of Angus extinguished a candle for their town to mark the centenary of the outbreak of World War One.

This was part of the Angus Lights Out event, a national commemorative event where people and communities across the country are invited to turn off their lights to mark the moment when the ‘lamps went out over Europe’ at the start of the First World War

As the clock struck 11 p.m, on Monday (August 4) Gemma Everett from Montrose, Kieran Pannell from Arbroath, Anna Bergen from Brechin, Natasha Lee from Carnoustie, Jonathan Fenwick from Forfar, Ryan Kopel from Kirriemuir, and Adam le Grice from Monifieth each extinguished the candle for their burgh, during the short open-air event.

The Lord Lieutenant of Angus Georgiana Osborne also extinguished a candle for the county. Angus Cultural Ambassadors Gleadhraich played their ‘Song for the Lost’ and Forfar Academy pupil Caitlin Adams read Major John Macrae’s poem ‘In Flanders Fields’.
