Had a wee trip to Airth this morning and there is indeed a 2nd World War section, it's on the left side of the memorial.

I'll post a wee piccy after I download it from my camera (providing it turns out that is!)

Anne.

P.S. Pandabean, not nicking your thread, I know it's not as easy for you just to pop along for another wee visit!
