UKNIWM - not listed

This is the finest church memorial that I have seen in the Borders. Constructed of oak from a tree planted at Abbottsford by Sir Walter Scott, the entire porch of the church has been turned into a shrine. It is difficult to photograph successfully because of the confined space and reflections from the glass but the church is, apparently, always open during the hours of daylight so if you are in the area......

There is also a framed memorial containing photographs of some of the men who died - again, awkward because of glass reflections but I've done my best.
