This memorial features a statue by Andy Decomyn, which is modelled on Private Herbert Burden of the 1st Northumberland Fusiliers.

Around the statue are posts, one for each man executed for military offences. Each post has a small plaque with brief details of the man.






The following posts in this thread will feature the posts with Scotsmen or Scots regiments featured.

Private Archibald Brown, Royal Scots. 4th June 1916, aged 19.

I have checked both SNWM and CWGC and I can't find a record for an Archibald Brown serving in the Royal Scots.

Edited to add the following:

Could it be this Archibald Brown? He was "executed for desertion" according to the War Return aged 28 whilst in Salonica.
