Lest We Forget

We gratefully dedicate these transcriptions of some of Wigtownshire's War Memorials to the county's men and women who died in the service of their country. Though presently these lists are far from complete, and we would welcome further information, they are made available here through the time and efforts of the following:

     Diana Henry, who provided pictures and transcriptions
     Randy Chapple, who supplied original transcriptions by J.E. Birchman
