Quite unusual I imagine, but this is the gravestone of the regimental dog "paddy" on Lochlands Drive.

UKNIWM Ref No: Not Listed
OS MAP REF: NO 633 411





Can anyone identify the regiment here?

Thanks for adding Paddy the 2/1 Highland Cyclist Bn dog headstone at the woods at McDonald park in Arbroath .

My wife and I have since returning home in 1999 placed a Poppy Cross at the grave on 11 November and on the day of the dog's death in January each year and thankfully the Poppy cross has been in situ on our return visit to lay the January Poppy cross
