Strathmiglo
UKNIWM Ref No. 44257

The Strathmiglo war memorial is an interesting slim black cross around 6' tall with the names of the dead in small bronze panels fixed to the face of the cross with a wealth of additional information for the researcher. There are also three bronze Victoria Crosses decorating the memorial.
The monument stands in the cemetery next to the kirk.

Very, very unusual.

Any reason for the bronze VC's decorating it?

The memorial is a very simplistic one. My guess is that the 'V.C.'s' have been added for decoration purposes to represent the bravey of those who fell.

Private David John Campbell Ireland is listed on the Arbirlot Memorial also.

His family moved from a farm at Bannety & Lappie near Strathmiglo to East Balmirmer in Arbirlot parish.

Lieutenant Flockhart Thom of the Fife and Forfar Yeomanry, attached to the Machine Gun Corps, was also commemorated with a stained glass window in Edenshead Church, Gateside.

I understand that this church is now a private house, but in the lobby of Strathmiglo Church there are colour photographs of the two stained glass windows donated to Edenshead Church by the parents of Captain James Flockhart Thom, MC. One window commemorates Captain Thom and the other the men of Gateside. The windows were unveiled in July 1919.
