  • The Scotsman 30 November 1920 -'The Moffat war memorial - the first burgh memorial to be completed in the county - was unveiled by Major Murray of Murraythwaite, M.P. for Dumfriesshire. A service was taken part in by the various ministers of the town, and addresses were given by Major Murray, Provost Huskie, and the Rev. R. Somers, B.D., parish minister. The Magistrates, Town Councillors, and burgh officials attended. The monument, which was designed by Mr. Reginald Fairlie, architect, Edinburgh, is composed of Doddington quarry freestone, the base and shaft being about 30 feet in height, the top being surmounted by the burgh crest, the flying spur, in bronze. It is in the form of a market cross, and is erected on the old historic site of the Market Cross, and bears the names of seven officers and seventy non-commissioned officers and men. The sculptor was Mr. Alexander Carrick, Edinburgh.'
