A fine stained glass memorial to just three men who fell.
Another 'find' for me here with the name of Sergt. David Lyon. I found several references to him in the local paper and I thought he would feature on one of the Civic Memorials at either Alyth, Lintrathen, Glenisla, Airlie or Ruthven - but to no avail.
As would happen, about twenty minutes later, I found him on another church memorial further up the road!
