To the sound of the Pipes and Drums of the Tyneside Scottish – Royal Artillery (Army Reserve), the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War was commemorated in a moving service and military parade in North Shields on Sunday.

The occasion was the culmination of the work of the volunteers of the Tynemouth World War One Commemoration Project, who have been engaged in researching the story of the almost 2,000 men of the former borough lost to the war.

The large number attending the event included family relatives of victims of the war as well as civic guests, project volunteers and representatives of churches and community organisations.
