Some very clear photographs of what looks like a well maintained memorial.

Where about in Fauldhouse is it situated?

Apart from the Royal Scots being first I can't quite work out how they aranged the list of units. At first glance it looks alphabetical but then there seems to be no order when it comes to units beginning with Royal.

Very strange but a very nice memorial of an unusual design none the less.

Regards

Adam
