Dear Anne and others,

Apolgies for not checking this forum for a long time and not responding to the photo request earlier. Anne, the work on the Ballater names is fantastic, great job.

Some details of carvings



Look closely at the cross wheel head. I didn't notice it when taking the photographs, I only noticed it when I had downloaded them but the celtic design is made up of Mills Bombs, '08 webbing, water bottles, bayonet and an entrenching tool.

Morrison William James Knowles Pte 27902 10th Cameronians b Keithhall e Aberdeen r Huntly 19 Killed in Action F & F 23-Jul-18 Husband of Jessie Morrison, Bridge St; Ballater. Maybe 7th Bn Black Watch S/41191 may 23rd or 24th Tullich MI Entry No 80 Soissons Memorial M. R. 18

Something wrong here and also at Huntly.
There was a William Morrison residing at Huntly who is listed by CWGC as 27902, but some of the details here do not tie up.
This man is also listed at Huntly and must be wrong.

The Huntly man was 27 and family members have confirmed he was the son of William Morrison, King St., Huntly., Husband of Mary Morrison ms McMillan, 26 George St., Huntly, Aberdeenshire.
