After getting some feedback from Anne Park I've renamed this thread from Bridge of Don to Oldmachar Parish, Balgownie, Bridge of Don

This memorial and bench is listed three times in the UKNIWM.

The pillar is listed as

BALGOWNIE - 5814, and

BRIDGE OF DON PARISH WW1 AND WW2 SCULPTURE - 44644

The seat is listed as

MEN OF BRIDGE OF DON AND DISTRICT WW2

Regards

Adam
