Rectangular Brass tablet hung in the main corridor of the school. According to a Janitor, this originally hung in the old St Patrick’s High School, now the site of St Michael’s Primary School and was moved here when Notre Dame and St Patrick’s were amalgamated as Our Lady and St Patrick’s School. He does not know of any corresponding Great War Memorial.

http://www.dumbartonreporter.co.uk/news/dumbarton/articles/2013/02/21/447699-plaque-campaign-connects-pupil-with-great-grandfather/

A CAMPAIGN to find out more about a Dumbarton high school's war memorial plaque, has connected a current pupil with his great grandfather.

Last month, the Reporter spoke to a family in the Vale whose great uncle was on the plaque in Our Lady and St Patrick's (OLSP) High School.

The plaque was unveiled in 1948 to commemorate the former pupils of the school who had died in conflict during the Second World War.

A school project headed up by Fraser McGarry, a history teacher at the school, involving pupils has been trying to find out the stories behind the names on the plaque.

Now it has emerged one fifth year pupil's great grandfather, who died at just 28, is on the plaque.

Brendan Black, 16, had known his great grandfather was involved in the war and says it's something he's grown up with.

He told the Reporter: "It's my great grandfather, that's on it, so I'm quite proud. I grew up knowing about it because of my grandfather, he was at the school when they put up the plaque."

Brendan's great grandfather William Black served in the Far East and was captured by the Japanese. He was held as a prisoner of war (POW) and died in 1944 in a prison camp. His remains are buried in a British cemetery in Kuala Lumpur and his family have visited the grave before.

His great-grandson says the recent interest in the plaque has reminded him of the importance of what the soldiers gave during the war.

There's a neat little history of the 2nd Argylls in 1942 at
http://www.cofepow.org.uk/pages/armedforces_2nd_argylls.htm

It includes this:
On June 22nd 2002, Argyll veterans and families gathered on the Finlaystone Estate near Glasgow for the unveiling of a commemorative stone on a hillside overlooking the Clyde dedicated to those of 2nd Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders and others who lost their lives in the Malayan Campaign and subsequent captivity.
Do we have this on the Project?
