After the short journey from the railway station, William Angus VC is assisted to his place on the platform for the welcoming ceremony. 

This was held at Market Place, in the centre of Carluke, and the town was brought to a standstill as the entire population, along with a large army presence, crowded the area and surrounding streets to witness the speeches and presentation.

The guard of honour here is formed from soldiers of Corporal Angus's regiment - the Highland Light Infantry.
