This Memorial Book is dedicated to Jimmy Johnstone, who was the inspiration behind my compiling the book.
Jimmy was a Shotts man through and through, and never lost his love of Shotts and the people who lived there.
When I had compiled several other memorial books for various other local villages and churches etc;
Jimmy mentioned he would love to see a book about the men from Shotts who died and served in the two World Wars.
I decided to surprise him by compiling a book about the fallen of Shotts in the1939 – 1945 war,
sadly Jimmy took very ill and I lost the race to have the book finished for him, when
he died two weeks before the book was completed.
With his death I lost one of the best friends and one of nicest men I ever knew. May he rest in peace.
