According to William Stanley, Land and Fleet Services, South Lanarkshire Council, the Cambuslang memorial did have plaques which were inscribed with the names of the fallen. The plaques were either vandalised, removed for refurbishment and lost or, they were stolen. This happened sometime in the early nineties.
