The famous Flying Fifers, a group of Orangemen from Richard Cameron Memorial No 64 District, have marked Armistice Centenary Year by pushing their running total for Poppy Scotland over £55,000. This year’s main effort consisted of a 700 mile cycle run from Leven to the Forest of Compiegne, France, where the 1918 armistice was signed. They also held street collections at band parades in Broxburn and Larkhall and took part in the 100 Mile Poppy Scotland Sportive. In recognition of their efforts, the pals have been invited to a civic reception hosted by the Provost of Fife, Cllr Jim Leishman, and attended the launch of this year’s Poppy Appeal at the Scottish Parliament.
