These names were on a bronze plaque fitted to the present stone cross in the war memorial. I don't know where the bronze plaque is today. Inside the lych gate at the war memorial were two panels bearing the names of the 158 men who joined up from the two villages and surrounding district. The panel is now in the Church Hall - see picture.
Of the 560,000 Scots that joined up for World War I (1914-18) , nearly 150,000 died. (from The Scotsman)
World War I (abbreviated WWI or WW1; also known as the First World War, the Great War, and the War to End All Wars) was a global war which took place primarily in Europe from 1914 to 1918. Over 40 million casualties resulted, including approximately 20 million military and civilian deaths. Over 60 million European soldiers were mobilized from 1914 to 1918 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_War_I
Second World War - by email - - From Bobby Robinson - on Saturday, November 20, 2004 - We are now at the fund raising stage for the restoration of our war memorial, and as you know the names of the men who gave their lives in the 1939 - 1945 war were not added to the war memorial. After contacting the war graves commission and from adverts in the local press I have the names of 19 men from that war. Since the end of the last war some local families have moved abroad, and perhaps some of them may have relations or relatives who lost their lives in that war, and so we do not miss anyone out I am asking you if you could possibly put the list of names below on your site as you get a lot of former locals visiting your site, and if they know of anyone who should be added to the list to contact me at Bobby Robinson
