Glasgow Rangers pub has TANK outside for Remembrance Sunday

The Bristol Bar on Duke Street in the east end of the city has the large military vehicle, decorated with two poppies, parked in the middle of Gateside Street.

The bar also has Union Jack and Lest We Forget flags flying and silhouettes of soldiers on the roof for Remembrance Sunday.

The junction of Gateside Street and Duke Street has been shut, with Bristol Bar emblazoned barriers blocking the road.

The pub said the tank is its first military vehicle and shared pictures of it on social media.

It also encouraged people to visit the bar for pictures and asked people to donate to Poppyscotland and veterans’ charity Erskine.

A post on the bar’s Facebook page earlier read: “Wow our first army vehicle is here and it’s belter.

“The Bristol Bar tank division are on site. Pop along get a wee picture and don’t forget to stick a wee pound in the poppy Scotland and Erskine bucket. Lest We Forget.”

The post has attracted nearly 700 likes and dozens of comments from impressed followers.

One person commented: “Well done all.”

Earlier today, across Scotland tributes were paid in memory of servicemen and women who served and died during the world wars and conflicts since.

Ceremonies took place at cenotaphs in Glasgow and Edinburgh, and other spots of remembrance around Scotland.

Nicola Sturgeon laid a wreath at the Stone of Remembrance outside Edinburgh City Chambers.

The Queen missed the National Service of Remembrance in London after she sprained her back.

Prince Charles laid a wreath at the Cenotaph earlier after Her Majesty, 95, was forced to pull out of the poignant ceremony.

This year marks 100 years of the poppy being the symbol of remembrance in the UK.
