No Longer Forgotten - View Online (Vimeo link)
On 21 June a Memorial to the Men of the Lanarkshire Yeomanry was unveiled at the Market Place, Carluke, South Lanarkshire.
Over the years this old Lanarkshire regiment has remained largely unknown to the general public, despite the fact that its reputaion during WW2 as a fighting unit of the British Army has been much commented on by military historians and academics.
Now with the unveiling of the memorial, they are no longer 'Lanarkshire's Forgotten Regiment'
The unveiling event and the subsequent interview with veterans of the Reginent was professionally filmed and is now available on DVD. During the war in the Far East, hundreds of men of the Regiment were taken prisoner by the Japanese and the DVD contains interviews with survivors of this harrowing time.
We are very grateful to Bernard Martin of Film Ocean Ltd, who has provided us with high quality DVDs of the Memorial Ceremony at Carluke for use in raising funds for the proposed Memorial at Belhaven Park in Wishaw. The DVDs, produced by Bernard at his own cost, include the complete Memorial Dedication Service and the conversations with the Veterans.
The DVDs are available at £10, inc p&p , and all proceeds are to be put to the commissioning of a similar memorial in Belhaven Park, Wishaw in North Lanarkshire.
