Herein lie the legacy of Brave Dunlops, Warriors all,
who fought in History's many wars.
A common thread runs through these stories, gained from old records,
dusty shelves, family bibles, and actual military archives.
It is that wherever Scots fought, in battles against evil or oppression or for a Great Cause, a Dunlop or a Dunlap was there, fighting in usual Celt fashion, and sometimes even sided against each other!
Read on each War's own page about our boys in: the Scottish Civil wars, at Culloden, the Londonderry Siege, at Trenton, Waterloo, the Battle of New Orleans, Vicksburg, Atlanta, Shiloh, Gettysburg, Argonne Forest, Iwo Jima, Quang Tri, the Highway to Hell and many other battles.

Where the ground is hallowed by their blood,
and their actions upon it!
These Veteran's Pages stand as a humble Memorial to all of our Clan who served us and their Nations well through History, even to the point of giving their lives!
It is our duty to reserve our great Dunlop heritage for those who come after.,
so that their honorable actions are not lost.
