This is a plaque inside the island church at Craighouse. I did not see it when I visited the island this year: it is reproduced in the book “Jura Parish Church, A Brief History”. I will send a copy to be scanned but if it doesn’t, it reads as follows. One date is not too clear so a ? mark indicates it.

To the glory of God and in memory of those who gave their lives in the Great War 1914-19.

Capt Ronald Walker Francis Campbell 10th Royal Fusiliers 11/8/16

The Church also holds two tablets to the Campbell brothers,a Window from 1946 which commemorates the safe return of those serving in WW2 and a Cross behind the Pulpit which was given in 1995 to commemorate 50 years of the end of WW2.
Details and photos will be posted soon.
