Careston - Angus District, Brechin Landward.

The Careston war memorial is a very fine bronze tablet with marble surround set on the wall of the kirk.


There is also another 'Roll of Honour' on the wall nearby with a longer list of names. I would assume this is a list of all of the men of the parish who served in the Great War, including the survivors.
