Adding to my post

For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. For six months this man has performed continuous good work as stretcher-bearer. He has at all times and especially during heavy fighting, rendered prompt assistance to the wounded and has undoubtedly been the means of saving many lives. (21.10.18 )

From The Scotsman, 01 August 1922

    WAR MEMORIALS

    ARDGAY. A monument to the soldiers of Kincardine parish, Ross-shire, who fell in the war was unveiled at Ardgay by General Sir Walter C. Ross, K.B.E., C.B., of Cromarty, in presence of over 2000 spectators. The marshalled procession was headed by the Seaforths pipe band. The monument is of granite, surmounted by a life-size statue of a Highlander on guard. The polished panels bear the names of 33 parishioners who fell.

I guess 3 names must have been added at some time, to make the 36 listed above.

I was passing this memorial today and noticed that the butt of the rifle is missing.
