Anne - great photos. I do like the "split screen" images, it's a really good idea for reflective surfaces.

Samuel McDonald DCM (MacDonald on all military records) is listed on the Saskatchewan Virtual War Memorial together with the citation for his DCM
http://svwm.ca/casualty-display/?ID=A000003552
He was born in Bridge of Allan.

Thanks for that Ken.

I've been having a look at the Bridge of Allan Roll of Honour and other local memorials to that area and it's possible that quite a few men have other memorials as follows:

(All these wee places, Lecropt/Bridge of Allan/Logie etc., are almost right next door to one another.)
