This is in todays evening times.

Pupils' plaque plan to mark 'bravest street' of Great War
THE "bravest street in Scotland" is said to have lost more soldiers in the Great War than any

Youngsters at Oakgrove Primary plan to replace a plaque that commemorated the fallen soldiers who had lived in a street near their school.

The dead were brothers, cousins and friends who lived in Victorian tenements along Lyon Street. But the road and surrounding streets were cleared when the buildings were bulldozed from the 1960s to the 1980s. Gone too was a wooden commemorative plague.

Oakgrove's head teacher Jane Cerexhe, said: "Our P6 pupils started to learn about the First World War last year and were fascinated by the story of Lyon Street.

"At the time was known as the 'bravest street in Scotland' as it was said to have lost more men than any other street in the country.

"The fact that this happened so close to the school has brought the project to life for the pupils and they have taken this story into their hearts.

"They are keen to replace the missing memorial to the fallen and have done a lot of research but would appreciate the help and stories of anyone with knowledge of Lyon Street and the local area."

The children are working alongside others at neighbouring St Joseph's Primary, community groups and the local community council.

Cat, there is a Thread about the Lyon Memorial and an Army guy has been searching for it for a few years.

Hi Heather cheers I just found it so posted it there also.
It's not a topic I had posted on previously but it rang a bell when I read it so thought it might be of interest to those who did.

Hi Heather - CAT

Thanks for the mention of the Lyon Street thread - and glad to see it being mentioned on Friday's Evening Times - hopefully it will raise further interest in finding the Roll of Honour. Somebody knows what happened to it and with the story being published in the paper it might just jog a memory - here's hoping

Quite fancy a visit to the school's tea shop to see if there is any further development

Again thank you to the forum for all their help

Heather, thanks very much for the prompt reply. I'm grateful for any help with this, so a name to follow up would be be great.
It's interesting that you mention it being kept in st. Joseph's as this enquiry was started by a parent with children at St. Joseph's Primary in Raglan St. I work in the Mitchell Library and will contact Milton in the morning.
I look forward to hearing from you with the woman's name.

Hi Dimairt, I,ve just read that you work in the Mitchell Library or maybe by this time
you don,t,anyway is it possible for you to do me a favour. My big brother and sister
and myself fell into the river at Daws holme during the winter of 46-47 but by luck some
men were out shooting water hens from the paper mill and saved us. Maybe it was
44-45 or 45-46. There was something in the (don,t ask me which one) paper my sister
says but I have looked for it whenever I have visited back home. THANKS
Le durachd,
Dimairt
