I hadn't noticed this before. Carrick copied the Killin memorial for the South African Scottish yet when he was asked to do a copy of Dornoch for Forres he refused.

I take it the difference was Killin / Pretoria were stone and Dornoch / Forres were bronze.

From: http://www.killinnews.co.uk/issues/issue119.pdf

The village war memorial has twenty names of service men who died in the First World War and six in the 1939-1945 war. They all belong to families who lived in the village during the two wars. L.A.C. Hamilton, Lance Corporal Forbes MacFarlane and Sergeant P.J. Stewart, three of the six who died during the second world war, have been the subject of previous articles. Some of their relatives still live in the village. The remaining three, Flight Sergeant Archie Marquis RAF, Capt A. D. Morris S.A.S and Sergeant J. Nicholson Black Watch, had families who are remembered by some in Killin but there are no family members remaining in the village.
Archie Marquis was a pilot with the RAF and spent much of the war flying between Canada and the UK. He died while taking part in operations in Italy and is buried in Ravenna War Cemetery. The family lived in Alpine Cottage just behind the present Breadalbane House. At that time the house was home to two families, the Muirheads and the Marquis family. One family on the top floor, the other on the ground floor. Archie's mother Christina (Chrissie) was a Muirhead before she was married so the two families were related. Archie's father, also Archie, was remembered as the driver of the horse and cart which collected ashes daily from all houses in the village.
Captain Alfred Dayrell Morris SAS sadly died on the last day of the war in Germany. He is buried in the Commonwealth Section of Hamburg Cemetery. While many families must have thought they could look forward to seeing their loved ones coming home, that was not to be for the parents of Dayrell Morris. The village celebrated the end of the war, like most others, by hanging flags out to mark the occasion. Dayrell's parents, Alfred and Emma, owners of the Killin Hotel, joined in hanging out flags even though they knew their son would not be among those returning home. He was married to Mina.
Sergeant John Nicholson Black Watch (known as Ian) died aged 24 on 19th July 1943 in Sicily and is buried at Catania War Cemetery. He was the son of John and Christina Nicholson and served in the North African campaign with the Desert Rats. The family lived at No 8 Monemore. Although the numbers who died in the Second World War were fewer than those lost in the first world war, Monemore lost three young men, the other two being Forbes MacFarlane from No 1 and Peter Stewart from No 10.
