Mark,

ROSS S EGGO is listed. I don't know what has gone wrong here maybe someone could help. When I initially posted the picture it appeared OK when I had the option to view the post but when I came back in later it looked like a postage stamp. If you contact me off forum I will send you both pictures, iethe memorial and the panel.

Kevin,

ROSS STEWART EGGO.

Yes he is also listed on the Blairgowrie & Rattray War Memorial - another of 'mine' who has links elsewhere. He was born in Braemar and his parents still lived there.
He worked as a draper in a large Dept. Store in Blairgowrie at that time.
Unfortunately one I didn't get a picture of, although I have his grave photo from Brown's Copse. But it is a bit scratchy through weathering.
I'll pm you with my e-mail address so you can send me the pics.

regards,
Mark

We have some very good photographs of this memorial but we don't have a location. Does anyone know where this is in Braemar?

The aircrash memorials should have their own posts as well.

Regards

Adam
