    No one knows where the Arbroath High School Roll of Honour went to as it appears not to have got to the present High School location in the 1985 move so wilful neglect on the part of the Education Authority of that time as the Arbroath High School Rector , Mr D Drysdale took the Roll of Honour into his custody and care from that time onwards ........

    ARBROATH GUIDE 30th June 1923 :

    High School War Memorial: ON the occasion of the prsentation of prizes at the High School yesteday, when all the pupils were assembled in the hall, the Rector Mr D Drysdale , said that when the school war memorial was first completed , TWO AND HALF YEARS AGO it was discovered that the names of FIVE OF THE FORMER PUPILS who had laid down their lives in the Great War had been received too late for inclusion in the list, which was to be inserted on the memorial . After that date another of the former pupils of the school died as a result of wounds received in action. The Committee who had had the erection of the memorial in hand , had arleady decided that there should be added to it an OAK CASE TO CONTAIN THE ROLL OF HONOUR , and they agreed the names of the six men should be inscribed thereon . That had been done, and the memorial was ready to be unveiled . With the assembly standing , Mrs D LITTEJOHN performed the unveiling ceremony. The names inscribed on the additional section of the memorial are :

    P W ANDERSON

    D BAXTER

    D CAIRD

    C ESPLIN

    G R MILL and

    J WILSON .


    The section takes the form of a TASTEFUL LITTLE GLASS FRONTED OAK CASE , in which the ROLL OF HONOUR will be kept. It was made by W. MIDDLETON & SONS , CABINETMAKER , MILLGATE .

    When you go home,Tell them of us and say,for your tomorrow,we gave our today.
    We should never forget that a lot of good upstanding men,drafted uncomplaining into the forces,went overseas and some never came home.
    They wanted our country to be free,not to be invaded and gave their lifes doing so.
    Had it not been for them,we might all be speaking German today

    The Director of Education at Forfar, the Head Teacher of Arbroath High School , Archivist of Angus Archives , and all do not know where this ROLL OF HONOUR in its oak cased cabinet has gone and the time scale is now 1985 when the "new" Arbroath High School came into being . You would think that the items in the "old" Arbroath High School would be itemised for removal to the "new" Arbroath High School but being an organisation like a Council everyone would wait for someone else to organise the removal so the Roll of Honour in its cabinet remained with the old furniture and was classed as "Rubbish!"
