UKNIWM ref no: not listed
O/S Map Ref: NN 010 641
N56 43.628 W5 15.188

Located at the side of the A861 in Ardgour.
The memorial is unusual in that the nearby Ardgour War Memorial does not carry the names of the Fallen and the observer is asked to attend the church to see the names there. And the walk is well worth it as the memorial carries a great deal of detail to the men.
