South Alloa War Memorial


Originally sited on the wall of the South Alloa Primary School, but removed in 1988 when the building was sold into private ownership. A cairn has been erected near the junction of the road from the village with the main road.


The white marble plaque has a rectangular lettered panel set between pilasters with acanthus leaves. The pediment over these carries a wreath and a sheathed sword. The inscription is as follows: "In memory of 12 young men of South Alloa who gave their lives for their country. 1914-18. Nine of these were pupils of this school. Ready Aye Ready"
