  • The Scotsman - Thursday 11 December 1919 - Memorial to Lieutenant the Hon . P . J . G . F . Howard , Welsh Guards. —In May 1918, Lord Howard of Glossop lost his younger son, who sacrificed his life for his country's cause in France. Desirous of perpetuating his memory, his Lordship has erected a handsome monument at Dorlin, the Scottish estate in Inveracss-shire, where a short time previously his son's honeymoon had been spent. The spot chosen is a small natural eminence near Coul, on the northern shore of Loch Shiel, a freshwater loch 20 miles long. It is in the deer forest, but sufficient trees will be cut down to make an opening to the water, and afford a view up and down Loch ShieL Near by is the Green Isle, which the people of the countryside have used as a burial ground for many years. This cemetery is very ancient, and contains a number of carved tombs, and, in addition, tho ruins of a chapel, with a unique Celtic bell of great antiquity. The site is symbolic of the lonely young soldier's grave in France, for there is no town within lorty miles, no habitation near save that of a deer-stalker. As Lieutenant Howard was a thorough sportsman, these surroundings are ideal. The monument has the shape of a cross, severe in style, and bearing a sword, the emblem of a soldier, on one face. The height of the cross is about 15 feet; it rests on a die 5 feot square weighing one and a half ton. The base is formed of three steps, each a foot deep the bottom one being 15 feet square. The top of the cross stands 23 feet 6 inches above tho ground. The die bears on one face the following inscription : — "Erected by Frances, 2nd Baron Howard of Glossop, in honbur of his son. Lieutenant the Honourabia P . J . G . F . Howard, 1919." On another is written : — "Lieutenant tho Honourable P . J . G . F . Howard , Welsh Guards , who died 24th May 1918 of wounds received in action while commanding No . 3 Company, 1st Battalion, in France. Born April 1895" The Howard coat of arms is quartered on the third side, the carving being exceedingly sharp and pleasing. The fourth panel is at present blank, but shortly will hold, in medallion form, a bronze bust of Lord Howard's son. The stone was quarried at Mouselow, one of his Lordship's quarries, by the tenant, Mr J .Greenwood, and carved there to the design of Messrs Douglas , Minshull , & Muspratt, of Chester.
