Thanks to Heather and Oor Wullie for your replies, the poem that you submitted is the one that the school copied onto a lovely plaque and the large one is in the school with a smaller A4 size being in the Woodside library at the war book section. I have a few newspaper cuttings concerning the memorial.
The story goes that it may have been taken by a brewery company and displayed in their foyer or board room - so does anyone know which breweries covered the area?
Lyon Street was short Street with some seven closes (dwellings) on one side and four on the opposite side - have looked at ward maps covering the area of about 1913 and have found the names of the families that lived in the street during that period.
I looked up the war graves and entered some of the names and found a couple of names matching the occupants who came from Lyon Street but not all of the searches show family details such as addresses and next of kin.
As Heather said it could belike looking for a needle in a haystack but if those reading this may have some relatives who remember the memorial could add to the story - the needle could be found or what happened to it!
