Description
SEGMENTED STONE COLUMN SURMOUNTING STONE PLINTH. PLINTH BEARS INSCRIPTION ON METAL PLAQUE IN WHITE LETTERING. It seems the names were originally carved into the stonework but after WW2 these were replaced with plaques which combined the names for both wars in alphabetical order, but the original newspaper report tells us which 20 of the 28 were WW1. Note- 1/The names are entered as they appear now, not as they may or may not have appeared after WW1, 2/At least one name is missing for WW2- Sir Charles William Cayzer, father of Sir Nigel John Gayzer, Bart, who is on.

Lamond, a procession of Boy Scouts, ex-soldiers, and the general public marched to the site of the memorial. Rev. Robert Wood, Parish Church, presided at the unveiling ceremony, and a prayer was offered by Rev. Walker, U.F. Church. The Earl of Strathmore, in unveiling the monument, said that, though not large and elaborate, it was simple, chaste, and pure, and was worthy of being a lasting memory of those who freely gave their lives for their country. Rev. W. Maxwell, Dundee, formerly of Newtyle, then engaged in prayer. After the Benediction "The Last Post" was sounded by Pte. W. Anderson, 6th Black Watch, and the National Anthem was sung. Among the many spectators was Mr Robert Fenwick, aged 84, whose medals showed him to be a Crimean Veteran. The whole of the work on the memorial was done by Messrs Gray & Sons, Newtyle.
