A cornet played on the Western Front during the First World War will sound Last Post in Dundee on Remembrance Day this year.
Used during the war by the band of the Hood Battalion, Royal Naval Division, the instrument is one of only a handful still in use worldwide and will be played for the final time during the naval remembrance service aboard HMS Unicorn, the oldest British-built ship afloat.
The November 11 event, 100 years on from the Armistice and the end of the war, begins with a parade through the city centre, starting at 10.50am, before the cornet is played at 3pm.
The service aboard the 194-year-old HMS Unicorn, held annually since 1924, will honour the 10,000 Scots who served in the Royal Naval Division during the First World War and commemorate the 1,598 Scots Sea Soldiers who lost their lives.
Dundee Lord Provost Ian Borthwick said: “Their courage and sacrifice will never be forgotten.”
