This is a Brass memorial to two individuals

It is Brass. The form is of a gothic arched window. Approximately 60cm high.
It is hung adjacent to the main wooden WM on the left interior wall of the church.

The Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders Coat of Arms is at the top of the tablet in the apex of the arch.

The Dumbarton Coat of Arms, from an old burgh seal, of an elephant with a castle as a howdah is at the bottom right of the tablet. The Dumbarton motto of FORTIDO ET FIDELITAS is above the castle. A circular belt with DUMBARTONSHIRE VOLUNTEERS surrounds the coat of arms.

The font is gothic capitals in black with certain words or intials picked out in red.

You could argue that this memorial could be listed under church or unit too given the inscription but I'm happy to leave it in this section.

They are also commemorated on Dumbarton's civic Boer War memorial:
