 A little bit of History about the War memorial plates thanks to Stewart Segrott

June 20 2008

We have to thank Stewart Segrott 
for updating us with regard to the  
         
War Memorial

Stewart tells us:

The original memorial plates were moved to Newbridge from Castle Mills
 around the early 1970's  where they were placed on a Granite plinth just
 inside the factory gates .
In 2000 when Continental handed over the Newbridge site to the 
developers we arranged for the plates to be removed from the plinth
 and they were stored in a retained warehouse in Broxburn for another two years.

Stewart then arranged for them to be delivered to the The Scottish War Museum
 .Stuart Allan at the Museum has advised Stewart that the plates are still in 
storage at the Museum depot in Leith  but they have been catalogued and 
photographed 
It is still proposed that they will now feature in a 20th Century 
Industrial heritage room which is to  be opened at the National Museum for 
Scotland 


Stewart once again keeps us up to date and I quote


July 24 2008

"As promised I can  confirm that the war memorial plates are now featured 
prominently near the entrance to the new permanent exhibition entitled
 "Scotland :A changing Nation "on level 6 of the National Museum of Scotland in 
Chambers Street  Edinburgh.
They have cleaned them up nicely and I believe that this will be their resting 
place for at least the next year thereafter I don't yet know but the  exhibition 
curator has promised to keep me informed.

November 2014

This article tells us that the old War Memorial from both the First and Second World Wars is now
located in the Royal Scottish Museum in Chambers Street Edinburgh

When Castle Mills closed the memorial was moved to Newbridge, and on that closure was then stored
in a Warehouse but with help from some old employees it was moved to the Royal Scots Museum 
and then recently to the Royal Scottish Museum

The Photos below show the total and then the three parts

This article from 1922 confirms the location on the memorial when unveiled and that the original mount for 
the memorial was marble

From ‘The Scotsman’ - Friday, 14th April 1922, page 3

NORTH BRITISH RUBBER CO. (LTD.)
A memorial to the employees and members of the staff of the North British Rubber Co. (Ltd.), Castle Mills, Edinburgh, who gave their lives in the war was unveiled by Lieutenant-General Sir Francis Davies yesterday afternoon. The ceremony was attended by a large representation of the firm's employees and their friends.
The memorial, which, occupies a prominent position to the left of the main entrance gateway, takes the form of a bronze mural tablet in a marble setting, designed in Neo-Greek style by Mr F. E. B. Blanc, and carried out by Holmes & Jackson, sculptors, Glasgow.
It perpetuates the memory of 106 employees. Mr Alexander Johnston, managing director, in the course of a few introductory remarks, said they had erected the memorial in order that they might not forget what they owed to those who had made the supreme sacrifice. At the beginning of the war over 440 of their fellow-workers had joined the colours. Later another 500 men joined. It was gratifying to remember that when the Derby scheme was introduced every man attested.
General Davies, in unveiling the memorial, said they had done well to record the memory of those men and what they had done. He was glad the memorial had been placed at the entrance, where they would, see it every day as they passed in and out. He would ask them as they passed through the gate to give one thought to those men -their fellow-workers -and remember what they had done. Future generations would see the memorial, and it would be an inspiration to them to do their duty faithfully to their country.
The Rev. Dr A. Wallace Williamson officiated at the dedicatory service. A platoon of the Castle Mills Cadet Battalion provided the guard and sentries, General Davies inspecting the boys prior to the ceremony.
At the close a large number of wreaths were placed on the memorial.


That means out of nearly 1,000 men enlisting that one in ten died.

You can see a photo of the gates here:

http://www.edinphoto.org.uk/0_buildings_g/0_buildings_-_north_british_rubber_co_workers_departing_ed_s_1900_098.htm

I don't think many of those in the photograph are heeding Lt Gen Davies's advice to spare a thought for those listed. In fact if the 
memorial is that rectangle you can just above the heads of the workers then the names are obscured by the gate.
