Broxburn and Uphall War Memorial

The Broxburn and Uphall War Memorial was unveiled on 3 October 2010 and below are two pictures taken shortly after its unveiling.  Every year, the people of both Broxburn and Uphall attend to remember the fallen from our communities.

Over a 5-year period, from 2014 to 2019, a dedicated group of individuals, ranging from 14 to 70 years of age, performed West Lothian Far From Ypres / There Was A Soldier to packed venues - including 3 years at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. These performances helped raise much-needed funds for the names of the Fallen to be installed at the Broxburn and Uphall War Memorial.

The plaques were unveiled, on Sunday 23 June 2019, by Deputy Lord Lieutenant John Povey, Mrs Kathleen Dalyell (widow of the late Sir Tam Dalyell), local historian Jonathan Moore and 96 year old WW2 Veteran Michael Boylan. As a young man, Michael served at El Alamein, Tripoli and Monte Cassino. He was one of Field Marshal Montgomery’s Desert Rats.

Mrs Meg Stenhouse has prepared books with details of those who Fell, which will be available in Broxburn Library and Uphall Community Centre.

The photographs below show the Memorial Plaques containing the names of the Fallen from our communities.
