The Great War Tapestry, designed by Andrew Crummy and stitched by volunteers from across Aberdeen & the North East, was officially presented to the Gordon Highlanders Museum this afternoon. It is a beautiful piece of work; the 9000 red stitches in the central piece represents the estimated 9000 Gordon Highlanders who lost their lives during World War 1.
