Rather than a physical memorial, such as the one for the First World War, it seems that the memorial for the Second World War for Wishaw High School took the form of a memorial edition of the school magazine, published in 1947.

It contained the names of 930 former pupils, and several contributed articles about their wartime experiences.

The largest part of the magazine was taken up with photographs and short biographies of all 83 of the fallen.

Below is a scan of the list of those who fell.
