Adam,

Does the memorial only list 2 men with their respective family trees?

Cheers for posting that up Adam, i've been meaning to get up there for a while now. Stewart MacDougall was the first CO of the 10th Gordons, and sadly, their very first casualty - killed by a stray shell while on his first visit to the trenches.

Yes, it's a family memorial only.

Barrie

That's what the forum is for! Croabh Haven is several miles down a private road and not the easiest place to get to.

Glad to have helped.

The two men are Father and Son so the same family tree. Stewart was my Great great Grandfather. His son Ian was killed first and Stewart took out the 10th Gordons shortly after and was then killed himself. On the Lunga pages there is an obituary

I don't know of other memorials around Britain except those in Ardfern just over the hill from Craobh, there is a war memorial by the Kirk in which stewart is mentioned and i think possibly also Ian. There is a plaque in the church itself and there is a memorial in the family plot at Kilverie further down the peninsula.
I have reason to be believe that Stewart may be mentioned in St Pauls Knightsbridge parishioners roll of rememberance UKNIWM no 39749 but I have never seen it to ascertain whether it is the same Stewart MacDougall,
