The Webmaster would appreciate additional information which readers may be able to give regarding the individuals recorded on this webpage.

This page contains information regarding those servicemen who gave the ultimate sacrifice for their country in the two Great Wars and whose names are recorded on wall plaques INSIDE Monikie Kirk and previously INSIDE Newbigging Church. The text shown first (red font) information given below is from one of the plaques; next (black font) is information from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website; and third* (brown font) was kindly provided by the webmaster of  'County of Angus Roll of Honour 1914 - 1919' and is sourced from a CD-ROM entitled "Soldiers Died In The Great War".

The question marks (???) indicate that, either no information can be found, or that the name cannot be positively identified from records to be the individual here recorded.

It is very important that such information shown on this webpage is historically accurate.  As can be read in the preceding paragraph the most of such information is sourced 'externally'.  Unfortunately, there may be errors in the text and the webmaster would implore any person who can correct any such errors to so do.  It is also important that such further information that can be given about any of those listed - or names of those who the plaques do not record, but you, the reader feels should - might please, likewise, contact the webmaster.

Thank you.
