I have removed the photobucket logos

The new memorial is in the cemetery area of the burial grounds at the former Buittle Parish Church.

Mr Brydson's two relatives were brothers who were killed in each World War.
George Dixon Black Brydson age 20 Private (56404) 1/7th Battalion, Cameronians (Scottish Rifles) was killed on 2 September 1918.
William Candlish Brydson age 38 Master: M.V. Silver Maple (London) Merchant Navy died on 27 February 1944.

The former church building has been sold and there are plans to convert it to a dwelling.
The memorial plaques are at:
WW1 http://warmemscot.s4.bizhat.com/viewtopic.php?t=3953

and WW2 http://warmemscot.s4.bizhat.com/viewtopic.php?t=3954

The small plaque at the bottom of the memorial reads:
"We will remember them"
This memorial compliments
the original war memorial
which is located
inside the church.
