Here's some photos of the St Andrews memorial, taken on what appears to be a very sunny Summer day.







Unfortunately my pictures of the name plaques didn't come out very well, so I've not included them here. If no-one else has photos of them then I'll gladly post them.

SCOTS GUARDS
C.S.M. JAMES ALLAN TU?......
