I wasn't sure how to 'name' this memorial. It is unclear whether they were adherents of the church, or at one time all members of the 1st V.B. (City of Dundee) The Black Watch, although I'm sure there would have been more listed if that was the case. It wont be for Dundee as a whole either as I'm certain there would have been far more casualties from the city.

My feeling is that this should be under the unit section.

Thanks
