This has it's own WM on the only road, just by the school.

Sorry, I recoreded no details. As the island is part of Kilbrandon and Kilchattan parish, the names may also be on the Easdale museum memorial or the one at Balvicar (on UKNI).

Hi Adam,
There's quite a bit of correspondence on the Carnatic Infantry and 2/Lt Turner on the Cemeteries and Memorials section of the Great War Forum.
