Macduff's knitted poppy display is back in place to mark Remembrance this week.

Since 2018 the knitted and crocheted poppies have been placed across from Macduff Parish Church at the cross and anchor and at the town's cemetery to honour those in the armed forces who have died serving their country.

The Macduff Cross was extensively renovated last year so more poppies have been added to cover the extended area.

This year's tribute across from the church has a cascade of poppies which includes a soldier's helmet on a cross and knitted boots.

The display was first installed five years ago for the centenary of the end of World War One.

It did not appear in 2020 due to the pandemic and returned the year after to mark the 100th anniversary of the poppy.

Remembrance services will be held on Saturday, November 11 and on Remembrance Sunday across Banffshire and the north-east.
