Remembrance events in the city kicked off at the High School of Dundee yesterday.
The ceremony concluded with a wreath being placed in front of the school’s war memorial by head boy Nathan Moorjani, 17, and deputy head girl Taskeen Bailwal, 17.
They also read out the names of the 29 former pupils who lost their lives in the First World War between August 1914 and November 1915.
Rector Dr John Halliday told the Tele that it was of vital importance for the school to remember “the sacrifices former pupils and all of those who have given their lives in the First World War and subsequent conflicts”.
He added: “We remember particularly those who lost their lives between August 1914 and November 1915.
“There was 4,000 men from Dundee who died during the First World War, 130 of whom were pupils at the High School.
“We look back at the mistakes of history and hope to learn from them so that we do not repeat them.”
A host of events are to be held on Sunday to mark the city’s remembrance, beginning with a parade from the High School of Dundee down Reform Street.
A service will also be held at St Mary’s Church where a wreath will be laid in the Nethergate’s Garden of Remembrance, followed by a church service.
At 11am, the Deputy Lord Provost, Christina Roberts, will lead the Powrie Brae remembrance event.
A wreath will then be left at the Law memorial at 12.20pm.
Commemorations continue at City Quay at 2.30pm for a submarine memorial event.
The last event on Remembrance Sunday will be a service at the Frigate Unicorn.
Major Ronnie Proctor, secretary of The Black Watch Association, says that the planned events in Dundee are not to be missed, adding: “I think that the commemorations in Dundee this Sunday are going to be really good.
“There are events planned right through the day and it will be a special one to remember.
“The city is bringing Remembrance Sunday to the fore.”
Ronnie says that the events taking place in the city are of “vital importance”.
He added: “They are very important because of the historical significance of what happened 100 years ago.
“It is so important that the youth of today realise what it was all about then.
“It isn’t just about the Great War, we are talking about Northern Ireland, Iraq, Afghanistan and other places around the world.”
