Armistice Service and Kirking 2014

11 Nov Armistice Service and Kirking 2014

Memorial PlaqueOn the 9th November 2014 the Incorporated Trades attended a small memorial service conducted by the Patron Rev Iain Thomson to mark the fallen Burges of Trade who died not only in recent conflicts but also in defence of the City of Aberdeen in the past.

The service was held at Trinity Hall prior to attending the City Armistice Service held outside the Cowdray Hall in Schoolhill.

This is also the day that the Trades have their ‘Kirking’ Service to finalise the Election of office bearers of the Seven Trades and the Election of the Deacon Convener and Master of Trades Hospital.
