There is a wee story behind this one.
Apparently in the late seventies Straloch Church, which is further along the road, fell into private ownership and was converted into a house.
The War Memorial stood next to the church - the owners desired to get rid of it but no-one else wanted it.
A farmer up that way, Eddie Stewart, who works at our office now and again, heard of this and set about 'saving it'.
He took the memorial from the church and erected it on his land, on a prominent heathery knoll at the side of the road and fenced it in.
Every year he takes the walk up the hill and lays a wreath to his 'kinsman'.
Eddies great uncle, Donald Stewart, is commemorated on both the Alyth War Memorial and Bendochy Lych-Gate.
Thanks Eddie.
