Roll Of Honour

We are collecting, collating and transcribing the men and women of the parish who gave the ultimate sacrifice in times of war. This list is not yet complete.
If you have any contributions you can offer about the men here, we would be honoured to add them. If we have missed any, please let us know.

We have quite a few of the Commonwealth War Grave website records printed in a Roll of Honour file in the archive. To recognise them, and to learn more about each, lets begin to collect the stories and family history of those of our parish who were involved in the military in the past.
Scotland's War is an Edinburgh University project to collect as many of the memories and memorabilia of Scotlands contribution to World War one .. both forces and at home. If you would like us to scan and photograph any items you have and send them on, we would be very happy to help.

Sites to check

to do : create a page per person and link up the records.
Digital Records to be collected : from War Graves website : copies of Commemorative certificate, Register record, Panel list document,
Paper records : Images of the Roll of Honour panels in Churches, and on any Memorial.
Printed copies of most digital records.
Paper and digital copies of any medal cards; service records; chelsea pensionner records (and links here)
Stories, images and family histories of each man.

Many of these men were working at Bonawe Quarries, they had come from outside the area, but are commemorated here. Of the men locally born and raised, quite a few were blacksmith and foresters sons.
