Menstrie War Memorial Addendum

I had forgotten I’d photographed Menstrie War Memorial before, in 2013, so in 2018 I did so again.

The town is in Clackmannanshire. Its War Memorial is a stone column in a park area to the west of the town.

The main plaque is inscribed, “1914 – 1918. They who are commemorated here at the call of King and country left all that was dear to them and gave up their lives that others might live in freedom. Let those that come after them see to it that their names are not forgotten,” with the names following. Base of column reads, “1914 – 1918.” The lower plaque bears “1939 – 1945” and the relevant names.
