Here is the Stirling District Post Office Workers Memorial which is currently displayed in the public area of the Stirling Delivery Office, 17 Whitehouse Road, Stirling. It was formerly housed in the old Sorting Office at the rear of the (former) Main Post Office, Murray Place, Stirling.
The memorial commemorates the dead of both wars and interestingly includes a member of the Home Guard.
(This memorial is behind glass - please excuse reflected flash.)

Just came across this thread on this site:

http://warmemscot.s4.bizhat.com/viewtopic.php?t=3909

which led to:

http://catalogue.postalheritage.org.uk/dserve/dserve.exe?dsqServer=localhost&dsqIni=Dserve.ini&dsqApp=Archive&dsqCmd=Show.tcl&dsqDb=Catalog&dsqPos=0&dsqSearch=%28%28AltRefNo=%27memorials%27%29AND%28%28text%29=%27stirling%27%29%29

It seems they have lost track of it's present whereabouts.
Tom.

Thanks Anne!

Here is Mr Norris' photo and short obitury from Stirling Observer Annual 1942 (courtesy of Stirling Public Library Ref. Dept - see my post on Stirling Civic Memorial thread):



His name is not included on the main Stirling Civic War Memorial.
