Dunning War memorial


The photo shows the front of the War Memorial in Dunning. You can see two plaques.
The lower, square one, says: 'Erected by the inhabitants of Dunning and District in grateful memory of the men from this neighbourhood who fell in the Great War'. The top one is smaller and curved and says 'These four tablets were added in memory of those who died in the war 1939 - 1945.

This is a complete list of all the names that appear on the Dunning War memorial. The order of the names is as on the plaques, right hand side, back, left hand side, top to bottom in each case.
