The Royal British Legion Largs branch is looking to the public for help in commemorating 100 years since the end of the Great War in Largs.
It is a historic milestone in the town later year to commemorate the end of the bloodshed of one of the most horrific wars in human history, and the Royal British Legion are planning a number of unique events to mark the special anniversary. 
For Remembrance Sunday, the legion is looking for descendants of soldiers who died in conflict in the First World War between 1914-1918 to lay wreaths at Armistice Sunday.
During the weekend, a festival of remembrance is taking place with marquees, a Night at the Proms style event at Barrfields, and special Armistice Day events.
On the afternoon Saturday 10 November a special event at Barrfields Theatre is being lined up with pipe bands, brass bands, choirs and will be like a 'mini Albert Hall event'.
Stuart Rumble, secretary of the Largs legion said: "It is going to be a very important weekend, specially with the 11th November falling on a Sunday. We have already spoken to Largs Churches Together about getting involved, and there will be an ecumenical service in which all the church ministers will be taking part.
There will also be a wreath casting at 3pm on the Cumbrae to Largs ferry in respect of those who were involved in the Merchant Navy.
"It has been suggested that from the names on the memorial from the First World War, we want see if there is a relative or descendent, preferably a child, who will also lay a wreath at the memorial service on Armistice Sunday, and we are looking for Largs and Millport Weekly News readers for help. It would be quite special if we could have a great great grandchild of one of the fusiliers."
