GARDEN OF REMEMBRANCE

Extract from Devon Valley Tribune - Tuesday 2 November 1948, page 3:

District Sparks

On Sunday first Tillicoultry will honour the 32 gallant lads who counted not the cost and gave their lives in the service of their country during World War II.
The Garden of Remembrance surrounding the War Memorial in the cemetery will be dedicated.
The ceremony will be carried through with deep reverence and due solemnity, with a simplicity that will reach the hearts of all.
Thoughts will go back to the dark days when the old country was fighting for its very life and continued existence, and the youth of the land stemmed the tide of a ruthless enemy.
Great sorrow came to many a home in Tillicoultry, and on this Remembrance Day the sincere sympathies of the populace will encircle those who suffered most.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning.
We will remember them.

* * *

It is anticipated that if the weather is favourable there will be large crowds at this dedication service.
That part of the Cemetery in the immediate vicinity of the War Memorial will be reserved for the relatives of the fallen, officials, and others taking part in the proceedings.
And the general public are asked to assemble on the Clow Knowes opposite.
Arrangements have been made for an efficient loud speaker service so that everyone will be enabled to hear perfectly.
It is trusted that the public will fall in with the general plan so that everything will be carried through in a quiet and dignified manner worthy of the Solemn occasion.
