(Glasgow Herald 12th of November 1919)
"IN MEMORY OF FALLEN RAILWAY WORKERS

An impressive ceremony took place yesterday forenoon on the platform of Dumbarton Central Railway Station, when a tablet, erected by comrades and fellow employees, was unveiled in memory of employees of the Dumbarton and Balloch Joint Railway who had fallen in action. Those present included Major R.E. Findlay, Boturich: the Rev. A.S. Inch, Lady Overtoun, Miss Mackenzie, and officials and staff of the railway. The unveiling ceremony was performed by Major Findlay. A tablet with a roll of honour of the employees, containing 40 names, is also in preperation, and will be placed as a companion to the one just unveiled
"

So is there also a Roll of Honour on Display?

Derek.
