Lt Col John Boyd Wilson is commemorated in a two light window in Dunblane Cathedral which is high up and difficult to photograph.
The text reads
"In memory of Lt Col John Boyd Wilson,7th Scottish Rifles(Cameronians) who fell in action leading his battalion.Gallipoli 28th June 1915."
The other side of the window is in memory of his wife who died in 1973.
