The War Memorial reads :
Have Pity on us at least you my friends because the hand of the Lord Hath Touched us. Of your Charity pray for the souls of these Who died in the war :

Pte Michael Connaboy- September 21st 1916
Pte Thomas Cullen - September 26th 1916
Pte Peter Malley - September 21st 1918

R.I.P.
Greater love hath no man than this that a man lay down his life for his friends Sacred Heart of Jesus have mercy on them.

The newspaper report covers the story and says Military historians have hit out after a memorial plaque for the Fallen BLACK WATCH soldiers was sold for 300 in an on line auction. Critics say the plaque for those killed in action in the WW1 should be donated to a local museum instead of being sold for Profit.
According to the e bay listing, the plaque commemorating private soldiers was removed from a tribute in DUNBLANE after a larger memorial was installed .
