Newbattle Church is a beautiful old church with a fascinating history, however I always thought that it had a chapter missing from that history, a memorial to those who fell in the Second World War.
Well I’m pleased to say that the Parish has taken the decision to approve a memorial and to begin fundraising for it.
I have been asked to draw up a list of names for the memorial. a great honour, and a duty I readily agreed to.
I have drawn up a provisional list of names for inclusion, 52 in number currently.
This comprises all of those named on Newtongrange and Easthouses war memorials and a number of men who have been omitted or declined a place on the above memorials.
If you have a relative who is NOT on the list and would like him / her to be considered for inclusion on the memorial, please contact me with details of that person via the contact form below as soon as possible, giving as much information as possible.
A cut off date will be announced in due course, once that date is set, further entries regrettably cannot be accepted after then.
