The St Andrews Day remembrance service will take place at the Eldon Square War Memorial in Newcastle City Centre on the 30th November at 12.30 for 1pm and afterwards in the Tyneside Irish Centre.
Like our St. Patrick’s Day Remembrance this provides an opportunity for the Tyneside Scottish to remember their gallant men and is especially important in this year 2016, the centenary of The Somme. It’s important to point out the this battle, which started with such terrible casualties for the Tyneside Scots and the Tyneside Irish on 1st July only finished on November 18th 2016. Thus our St Patrick’s Day Remembrance on 17th March and the Tyneside Scots St. Andrews Day Remembrance on 30th November provide suitable days before and after the battle when the 2 battalions who suffered the worst casualties and are forever united in sacrifice, place, community and history can remember the fallen.
We will be there on November 30th at Eldon Square to remember the gallant Tyneside Scots, we hope many attend.”
