Fairlie's Men Of The Great War


     The Fairlie Roll of Honour 1914-18, which hangs in the Village Hall, lists the men of the village who served in the Great War.  This plaque was the starting point for the Fairlie's Men Of The Great War project, which aimed to find out the stories behind the names.  With the help of a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, we researched the names and set up a website, had booklets printed, and we mounted an exhibition in the Village Hall in 2015, 2017 and 2018.
