Poignant tributes were made in memory of our heroic war dead took place yesterday across the isles.

Ceremonies were held to honour those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

At the Lewis War Memorial a massive number braved the wind and rain to pay their respects on Remembrance Sunday, with a service led by the Moderator of the Church of Scotland, Rev Dr Angus Morrison.

Wreaths were placed by army, navy, RAF and merchant navy representatives, as well as by representatives from the emergency services: coastguards, police and fire service.
