Fields of Remembrance

During the Scottish Poppy Appeal members of the public have the opportunity to leave a tribute to the Armed Forces, past and present, in our Fields of Remembrance in Edinburgh and Inverness.

The Field was first introduced in Edinburgh in 2011 with Inverness following in 2013. Last year saw around 12,000 crosses on display across the two sites, each one sent in from supporters, many with heartfelt messages in memory of lost loved ones or support for the Armed Forces. There was also a special Afghanistan plot to commemorate the 453 Servicemen killed in action during the conflict.

As well as crosses, other tributes are available including a Sikh Khanda, Muslim Crescent Moon, Jewish Star of David and a non-denominational symbol.
