DAVID H. BLANE MILITARY RESEARCHER
BENARTY WAR MEMORIAL
During my research of West Fife newspapers I discovered that there had been four meetings held in 1919 to discuss a War Memorial. The meetings were chaired by Councillor Garry held in the Picturedrome, Crosshill. The fourth meeting decided that the community preferred to have a public utility, rather than a memorial to the war and this was to be in the form of a bowling green, with the provision of a memorial plaque. Years later two bowling greens were established at Lochore and Glencraig. However no plaque was established at either. On Wednesday, March 26, 1924 a Unique War Memorial, to commemorate men from the Mary Pit who died in WW1, in the form of a huge white marble tablet, was unveiled in Lochore Workmen's Institute, placed on the interior east wall of the reading room. This was the old Workmen's Institute NOT the present one though the Memorial Tablet was moved to the present institute after it was built. Benarty Community Council decided to erect a

memorial in . At my first Remembrance Day Service at this memorial I was amazed that there were no names inscribed on it, in honour of the fallen from Benarty, who sacrificed their lives in WW1. Since joining Benarty Heritage Preservation Group as their Military Researcher, in 2014 I started to compile a list of Benarty Fallen for both WW1 and WW2 for inscribing on the memorial. I can appreciate the feeling of the community after WW1 as regards a memorial, due to the family hardship caused by the loss of loved ones, the bread winners for their families. However, I felt that in this Centenery Year of WW1 a very fitting tribute should be paid to the fallen of both wars by having their names inscribed on the Benarty memorial.

Anne -Blane lists James Duncan Private S/40406 2nd Gordon Highlanders as on of the soldiers that should be on the Benarty memorial
