memorial is to be found beside the path, through lych gate, in
School Road, between Lychgate Road and Abercromby Primary School at
Samson's Button, School Road, Tullibody, Clackmannanshire. The base
on which the memorial stands was known as Samson's Button, a local
legend stating that Samson threw it there from the top of Dumyat.
The memorial takes the form of a rectangular pillar rising from an
irregular boulder in the centre of a small pond with a raised cross
sited on the front face of pillar. There are two tablets with names
that were added in July 2018 by the Tullibody History Group, replacing
an original World War 1 plaque, thought to have been stolen. No original
World War 2 Plaque existed. The Lych gate, standing on the path to
the memorial garden, used to have two panels with the names of 158
who served, and are understood to be in the Parish Hall although as
yet unseen. There are 27 names for World War 1 (although some of these
seem dubious) and 16 names for World War 2. The original memorial
was unveiled by General F. J. Davies, K.C.B., K.C.M.G., K.C.V.O. and
dedicated by Reverend R J Thomson on 2 October 1921. In 2017 the memorial
was vandalised which was reported in the Daily
from The Scotsman - Monday 3 October 1921, page 8:
MEMORIAL AT TULLIBODY.
UNVEILED BY GENERAL DAVIES.
memorial erected to commemorate the men from Tullibody and Cambus
district who fell in the late war was yesterday formally unveiled
by Sir F. J. Davies, K.C.B., K.C.M.G., K.C.V.O.
In some respects the memorial is unique. The base consists of a huge
boulder, weighing about 40 tons, known as "Samson's Button,"
which local tradition says was thrown from Demyati—a summit
of the Ochils—by the strongest man in Bible history. The surmounting
column is about 7 feet high, and is intended to represent as nearly
as possible the carved cross known as "the stanin stane"
of Tullibody, which is supposed to have been demolished 150 years
ago, and the material used for metalling the roads. A brass plate
contains the names of the 27 men of the district who made the supreme
sacrifice. At the entrance to the grounds surrounding the memorial
an artistic gate has been erected as a tribute from those who served
to those who the names of the 158 men who "joined up" from
General Davies said that they had come there that day to do what little
they could to pay honour to the men who gave their lives. They did
well to pay them honour. He did not suppose that one of those men
hesitated for a moment when the call came to go out and face danger
indescribable for the sake of the King and country. What they had
save them from, he thought, perhaps, they did not quite realise. What
would it have meant for them there if the tide of war had rolled over
their country? What had happened in France and Belgium would have
happened here had not the brave men from their parish and from all
parts of the land sacrificed their lives in order to secure their
freedom and save the country from destruction. He hoped the memorial
unveiled that day would never be misunderstood or neglected, and he
suggested that all parents should explain to their young children
what it their young children stood for and what it meant, so that
for all time it would prove an inspiration to the young men of the
The Earl of Mar and Kellie, in proposing a vote of thanks to General
Davies, said that it ought to be known that the ornamental part of
Ihe memorial grounds in which they were now assembled had been gifted
to Tullibody and Cambus by Major Kennedy Tullis, who also conceived
the idea of erecting the Celtic cross on the boulder.
