NS9368 : WW1 Drill Hall site, Armadale

WW1 Drill Hall site, Armadale
WW1 Drill Hall site, Armadale
On James Street, Armadale, this was the site of a WW1 drill hall of the 10th (Cyclist) Battalion, Royal Scots (C Company) Link. It was later used as a Catholic chapel, and then as a builder's yard but burnt down in a fire that necessitated evacuation of houses on James Street and High Academy Street. It was demolished about 5 years ago. I was told that the shooting range had lead-lined walls to absorb bullets, and the value of lead recovered at demolition covered the cost of the site purchase.
