My thanks to Stewartry for the following:
"Kirkcudbrightshire Advertiser, 18 February 1916:
Trinity Church, Castle-Douglas, has just been presented with a new and beautifully illuminated Roll of Honour. It is the work of Miss Jessie Crawford, a distinguished student of the College of Art, Edinburgh. Upwards of forty names are inscribed on it. One of those on the roll made the supreme sacrifice, and several have been wounded and invalided.
The reference to 'supreme sacrifice' is likely to be Ben Rae, 1st Gordons, killed 2 June 1915."
As there is no sign of the Roll of Honour, I fear we must now record this as lost.
