Largs, Fairlie, Skelmorlie and the Isle of Cumbrae Timeline

World War 2 1939 to 1946

By Ian McIntosh

Ian lives in Largs and has been interested in military history for many years. He has been working on various history projects for nearly 20 years. These have included First World War Rolls of Honour for Largs, Isle of Cumbrae, and Skelmorlie and Wemyss Bay.

Ian has been working on the Largs and district Second World War timeline for 5 years. His sources included his personal collection of documents and reference books, local newspapers, commonwealth War Graves Commission records, British Library and the National Archives. Ian would like to highlight that this timeline is very much a Draft and work in progress. The Old Largs Web team would like to thank Ian for letting us add his work to our web site.
