A friend of mine Fraser Mitchell has been able to inform me of the war memorial inside ALL SAINTS SCOTTISH EPISCOPAL CHURCH, in West Street , STRICHEN , Aberdeenshire

The memorial is a tablet memorial on the church wall for 1914-1919 :
viz


"This Tablet is erected in grateful Memory of the Men of this Congregation who Laid down Their Lives for King and Country in the Great War 1914 -1919

WILLIAM BURNETT - ARTHUR BARRON PARK

ALEXANDER REID CAMPBELL - JOHN RETTIE PARK

JOHN EWEN - WILLIAM PURVIS

ALFRED MURISON - ALEXANDER STEPHEN


"Their name liveth for evermore




(Patrick w Anderson )
