Disappointment at the Cenotaph

CONSIDERING the number of Scottish servicemen who have died in Iraq and Afghanistan and the large contingent of Scottish regiments present at the Remembrance Day ceremony at the Cenotaph in London, I was appalled that not a single member of the Scottish Parliament was there to lay a wreath and that it was left to the Welsh representative to do so on behalf of Wales and Scotland.

How must that have made the Scottish families of those who died or who have been wounded feel?
