  • Falkirk Herald, 12 October 1946. ‘War Memorial Unveiled’ There was a large congregation in Dennyloanhead Church last Sunday to witness the unveiling of a Roll of Honour and a Mural Tablet in memory of those who served and those who gave their lives in the World War, 1939 – 1945. Miss Jean Day rendered two solos, ‘Crossing the Bar’ and ‘The Flowers o’ the Forest’. The unveiling was done by Capt. Thomas Shanks, Denny, and the Scripture Lessons were read by two ex-prisoners of war, Messrs John Boyd and Ribert Guy, The service was conducted by the rev. A. E. M. Thomson, who took for his subject “The Value of Sacrificeâ€�. At the close of the sermon, Capt. Shanks unveiled the memorials and paid tribute to the memory of the fallen. The prayer of dedication was then offered, after which Mr. Izatt, of the British legion (Bonnybridge Branch) placed a wreath of Flanders Poppies. The inscription on the Mural Tablet reads: “In faithfull remembrance of the following, who made the supreme sacrifice in the World War, 1939-1945 - James Coulter, Dan Faulds, Hamish Fraser, William Stewart. Faithful Unto Death.â€� After the benediction had been pronounced, ‘The last Post’ was sounded by Messrs Crane and Burnett. The Roll of Honour was written and gifted by Mr. R. M. Colman and the Mural Tablet by the members of Dennyloanhead Women’s Voluntary Service.
