No it wont. The cenotaph parade is not taking place this year. The British Legion has informed its members not to travel or attend.

That’s a shame but understandable. I’ll be going along regardless and will quietly observe my minutes silence and pay my respects as I always do. I’ll then follow this by a few beers in the guards club if it’s open. 
 

It’s one day in the calendar I always look forward to. My great grandfather (a Harrison) was a member of the leith battalion Royal Scots and went over the top at the Somme. He survived but shell shock robed him of a normal life when he returned. Lest we forget!

It's a pity but of course understandable. I wonder if this will be the first time it hasn't gone ahead?

It’s a shame but it doesn’t stop people laying things there.

I should have added "official news". You know from the club. I fully expect it to be different even cancelled but perhaps they'll do a virtual ceremony.

I imagine there will be no ceremony as such but the wreaths will be laid with no fuss. The JKB wreath has been paid for and should be delivered to the Guards Club as usual.

Is that the Guards club on West Maitland Street Dave, or is that closed down now?

That's a barry wee boozer that. Glad to hear it's still open, it's done the job for a few pre-match beers many times.

I went last year and as usual was a very nice service but was

saddened to hear from an official from the club i was talking to at the 

ceremony that it was not going to take place again this was obviously nothing 

to do with COVID-19 at the time as no one had heard of that at the time

Strange thing for someone to say. I think this would be the subject of intense discussion if it were true so I assume you must have misunderstood what was said.

Hopefully someone could set up some sort of official online event or perhaps it's already been thought of?

Sorry Seymour, didn't see your post with totally agree with you. Virtual ceremonies also have the advantage that they can be broadcast at hospitals and retirement homes etc.

This..I live along the road.. As long as folk keep distance...should be able to pay our respects...

I see there's supposed to Be a civic service in East Princes street...

It lifts the heart... But folk have to be sensible.......

The old boy on the door was brilliant. Always gave us shit when we showed RAF  id's. "Watch yer bums boys, the brylcream boys are in the bar" 😂 😂 

Always treated brilliantly and all the English boys i took to Tynie via the club still have a soft spot for us.

45 year's ago and remember them day's, as if Sunday last week. Great Grandad playing dominoes,  as he'd hand me a few coins to play the 1 arm bandit, without fail it would drop it's load for me. 

Great granny

"he's rattling coins,  you had him gambling 🤣 "

Was the club elsewhere at that time? I know it was Ardmillan HSC in the early 80s (where the Guards club is now I mean).

Not 100% sure Dave, I used to attend Federation meetings there in the 80s and its got the same sort of layout. Can remember there was I think a Liberal club next to AHSC so maybe thats it. Sure someone will turn up to tell us.

Thanks mate, I knew it was the right block of buildings but just unsure as to where AHSC actually was, its an age thing.

The Royal Scots Grey Club,  West Maitland Street, is where my great Grandad had me, most Sunday's, winning the one arm bandit 😀

The Club will be making a public announcement about the revised Remembrance Service plans this week.
 

In light of continued public safety restrictions in Scotland, and the risk of COVID-19 spread, plans for this year’s ceremony have been changed with the intention of keeping our supporters, our local community and our staff and players safe. Additionally, the revised plans will reduce pressure on the Police, CEC Public Safety and Road Networks at this time. 

There will be no public service held at Haymarket this year and instead, we will be broadcasting a virtual ceremony and encouraging people to stay safe at home.  Details of how to watch the service will be shared via the Hearts website and social media channels in due course.

Seems strange. Small scale gatherings for Remembrance will still be allowed here in Wales, despite the lockdown.

Precautionary but sensible decision.

 

If there was a local outbreak following the service, the club would face heavy criticism.

Only saying, as perhaps the SG would allow smaller gatherings around the Country, despite the near certain tier's that are coming.

 

If Edinburgh Council & the Police want to pre-empt any announcement, fair enough.

I know a lot of posters who will not have been near Haymarket during the pandemic. Although I work nearby I hadn’t walked by the clock for a few months. What a difference in the gap site, finally beginning to see the development progress. 
Really dislike the metal fencing colour scheme.

Point of order!

 

Remembrance Day has not been cancelled, just the live service.  You're in danger of getting a job as sub-editor on the Daily Record.  :Stupid_Heads_by_Vir

With the greatest of respect to those who turn up each year, it's a fairly mature crowd. Not only the media, but all of our enemies and detractors would have a field day if anything went wrong.

 

Sensible decision unfortunately.
