Armadale & District War Memorial Association

Registered Scottish Charity No. SC044493

After the adding of two names, James Browning, Royal Marines, who had died during the Falklands War, and Hugh Vaughan Roberts, Royal Scots, who was killed in action in Burma during WW2, it has become obvious that the work would never be in keeping with that of the original War Memorial.

The fact that our countries armed forces are still on active service in various war zones around the world, there could be, God forbid, the distinct possibility that service men and women from Armadale & District may still pay the supreme sacrifice.

 

That being the case, perhaps it is time to rectify this.

 

In speaking to some like minded people of the town we decided to approach the community council with a proposal to look into funding a new memorial and to gain their support. To this aim we have set up this association.

The main objectives of the Association is to raise funding for the provision of a suitable memorial to the servicemen & women of Armadale & the district who have given their lives in the service of their country and also to recognise all who have served in the armed forces. To be able to provide the information and stories associated with them for future generations.
