History
July 2013. £13,000 project of refurbishment and cleaning the plaques. Days after completion, the two WW2 plaques and one WW1 plaque were stolen, and another WW1 plaque damaged. The stolen plaques were later recovered from a scrapyard in Fife, but two had to be remade. In August 2015 the thief (whose grandfather was one of those named on the plaques) was jailed for a year; June 1997: WW2 names recorded as faded.
