Old Kilpatrick - Roll of Honour

The forward to this little undated volume reads:

In further remembrance of the Great War (19 14-1919) and of those members of Old Kilpatrick Parish Church who served in it this booklet is now issued. The Congregation has already erected in the Church a bronze memorial tablet containing the names of the thirty-four men who gave their lives and has also dedicated to their memory four suitably inscribed communion patens, while relatives have further presented silver communion cups to commemorate certain individuals.

The names recorded on the following pages have been engrossed in the Kirk Session books for
preservation, and they are now presented in booklet form in order that a copy may, by way
of memorial, be supplied to each family represented on the list.

A specially bound copy will lie in the Church for preservation as the Roll of Honour of the Congregation in lieu of the usual scroll of names.

Every effort has been made to secure accuracy of name and designation in this record. The
list has been twice printed in the Parish Supplement in order that those interested might have
an opportunity of rectifying mistakes; effect has been given to all changes and corrections intimated ; and the Kirk Session will greatly regret if despite these precautions, any mistake occurs in the list.

This Roll of Honour is sent forth with renewed sympathy for those who mourn the unreturning and with thankfulness to Almighty God for the honourable service rendered both by the living and by the dead.

In name oj the Kirk Session,
