Inscription reads

Erected by the inhabitants of Lochlee Parish, in loving memory of the men of the parish who fell in the Great War 1914-1918.
Sgt A Duncan Gordon Highlanders
Pte J O Cruickshank " "
" R Christison Black Watch
" A Dunbar " "
" J Stewart " "

" D P Stormonth " "
They did their duty and their bit

Lochlee Church, which is a couple of miles up the glen from the War Memorial in Tarfside village, has no memorials but on leafing through the vestry book, where brief details of services and collections from 1934 to present times are recorded, I came across this entry for September 3, 1939, which simply reads 'War declared. No service.'
