For everyone with an interest in the town, people and parish of Shotts

Lest We Forget


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 twoWorld 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.
