On Friday 21 March 2014, a ceremony is being held to rededicate the newly refurbished cenotaph area and launch a new First World War project.
The day will link two soldiers from Whitburn whose name appear on the memorial, Lt Sir Gawaine Baillie, who it is believed was the first Whitburn man to have lost his life in 1914 and Sapper Robert Thomson who was the last Whitburn resident recorded on the cenotaph. Along with many others, these two brave men were united undertaking their duty, paying the ultimate sacrifice.
A parade of serving soldiers and ex-service personnel will assemble and leave Whitburn Bowling Club, West Main Street at 2pm and parade to the cenotaph, where the ceremony will begin at 2.30pm, returning to Whitburn Bowling Club thereafter for refreshments.
