Michael Muldoon

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: DEDICATION OF PRIVATE MICHAEL MULDOON’S CWGC HEADSTONE IN BO’NESS CEMETERY – Next Saturday 28th May 2022 – 12:00pm noon

On page 457 of Without Fear we told the tragic tale of Private Michael Muldoon, service no: TR/2/13417, Royal Scots Fusiliers, 9th Bn, converted into 55th Training Reserve Bn.

He was stationed at Kinghorn, Fife when he died at Whinnyhall Shooting Range, Burntisland, on 14th November 1917, after being accidentally shot during shooting practice.

Last year we announced that Michael was to be added to the CWGC roll of honour and be given a CWGC headstone to mark his grave in Bo’ness Cemetery.

We are delighted to be able to tell you that the headstone has now been installed.

Furthermore, next Saturday, 28th May 2022, coincidentally during CWGC War Graves Week, there will be a dedication service led by Father Forrest at the graveside commencing 12:00pm noon. We will be joined by Michael’s relatives, the Lord Lieutenant of Stirling & Falkirk Mr Alan Simpson, Patricia Keppie of CWGC, Piper Walter Williamson, Bugler Lauren Robb and others.

The service will last about 30 mins, following which there will be a small reception offering teas & coffees at St Mary’s Church Hall.
