Security Scotland were privileged to provide the security personnel yesterday at Ayr & St Andrew’s beaches for film producer Danny Boyle’s Pages of the Sea production.

The film maker invited the public to join him in marking 100 years since armistice and the end of the first world war.

Communities gathered on beaches across the UK to say goodbye and thank you, to the millions of men and women who left their shores during the war, many never to return.

On the 29 selected beaches which included Ayr & St Andrews, over the course of several hours, a portrait of an individual from the First World War emerged from the sand. And then, as the tide rises, be washed away as we take a moment to say a collective goodbye.
