UKNIWM Ref: 5971

Located on Chapel Brae overlooking Catrine at OS Map Ref NS 531 260. This very tall obelisk is on top of a hill and so needs its own lightning conductor! Although its dominant position overlooking the village provides an excellent view (apart from the strange poles – see pic 7), it is remote from day to day passage of people and so attracts the ‘wrong sort’. There is evidence of grafitti on the bench and campfires although (thankfully) the memorial is clean. The main trouble is that there is only parking for one or two cars at most and it is a long way up a steep hill so the remembrance service is poorly attended. The local amenities committee are trying to raise funds for a memorial park in a central location to make the annual service more viable.

Note that the Great War panel has two names who served in the Italian Forces, very unusual. Anyone know how we might check them out? They are obviously not on CWGC and are not listed on SNWM either.

One that caught my eye…………..

I've seen a few Italian names on Great War panels before. There are a few in Edinburgh and two on Cleland's memorial.

I've got the contact details somewhere for Italy's equivalent of the CWGC. I'll see if I can find it.

Regards

Adam

I came across the family gravestone of this man in Cathcart Cemetery, Renfrewshire. He is not listed on the Catrine war memorial but there is a birth certificate for a William GIbb born at around the same time in nearby Sorn. Unfortuately Sorn hasn't been posted yet so I don't know if he's listed on the Sorn memorial.

I'm pretty sure that the Thomas Paterson listed here in the Royal Scots Fusiliers section is:
Thomas Booth Hume Patterson. (note double "T")
Thomas was born in Rochdale, Lancashire in 1890 but the family originated from Gatehouse-of-Fleet in Kirkcudbrightshire and his siblings, older and younger, were born there.
Thomas was a coal miner and married Elizabeth Haining of Wood Street, Catrine in 1913 in Catrine. According to the Stewartry Roll of Honour, and presumably because of his occupation, Thomas did not join the 7th RSF until May 1918. He was wounded at Cambrai and had a lower leg amputated. He died on 26 April 1920 in Kilmarnock Infirmary of illness related to his wound.
Three of his brothers were killed in the War, John William - 15/8/1916, George - 25/9/1915, and Henry - 25/4/1918. They are all listed together on the Anwoth and Girthon Parishes War Memorial in Gatehouse.

Thomas is not on the CWGC Register but no evidence has survived which would allow a case to be made.

Irvine Herald 1 October 1915
" Mrs Jas. Meikle, Wood Street, received a letter from her son, Sgt. Robert Meikle, 5th R.S. F., on Monday under date 15th September, in which he says that his corps are getting things a bit warm at the Dardanelles, having just completed a spell of 25 days in the trenches, and he states that Drummer Willie Biggar was killed last week. Biggar, who belongs to Kilmarnock, resided in Catrine for a time, and is the son-in-law of Mr Alex Fowler, Wood Street. He was well known in football circles, and was an enthusiastic player with Catrine Thistle Club. His death will be regretted by a wide circle of friends. Much sympathy is expressed here on behalf of his parents who had a son killed in France a few months ago. Another brother of Biggar has been missing in the Dardanelles since 12th July."

Irvine Herald 10 September 1915
"CATRINE SOLDIERS WOUNDED
Cheerful news has recently been received by Mrs Ewing, Ayrbank Cottage, as to the condition of her son Corporal James W Ewing, 5th R.S.F., whose photo appeared in the “Herald” at the time he was wounded at the Dardanelles. About a month ago he was reported as having died of his wounds, and while this was contradicted from Head-quarters, still no direct word came from him until a few days ago, when his mother received half a dozen letters which had been delayed in transit. He states he had been dangerously ill, but that he is now getting along all right and has been transferred to a Convalescent Ward. He expects to be sent home at an early date to get braced up by the caller Scottish air. Catrine folks both at home and afield welcome the good news and wish Corporal Ewing a speedy recovery."

Sadly James did not survive being killed on 23 April 1917. His service record shows his promotions from Private to L. Corpl on 5 August 1914, Corpl on 25 January 1915, L/Sgt on 24 June 1916 and Sgt on 8 August 1916.

Irvine Herald 10 September 1915
"CATRINE SOLDIERS WOUNDED
Corpl. Robert Fowler, of the 5th R.S.F., who was wounded on 12th July at the Dardanelles, arrived home on Thursday. An old member of Catrine Territorial Coy., he rejoined at the outbreak of war. Regarding the fighting on 12th and 13th July he says the Battalion was ordered to take certain trenches and hold them at any cost. We advanced 750 yards when the troops in line with us had to retire and left us exposed on both flanks with the Turks pelting our wings with machine guns. At this point the Naval Brigade came to our assistance. Then we got at them with the bayonet and after some fierce fighting made them turn tail. We had three charges on the 12th, two on the 13th and a counter attack by the Turks, which lasted from midnight to five o’clock in the morning, but we did not flinch, though we had not a single officer left. He was wounded at one o’clock in the morning and was not picked up till seven o’clock at night, having been shot in the shoulder, the arm, and the lower part of his body. Corpl. Fowler is a son of Mrs Hugh Fowler, St. Cuthbert Street. In civilian life he worked in the mines. He is now doing well and expects it will not be long before he is facing the music again."

Sadly Robert was killed on 26 August 1918.
The record of "Soldiers died in the Great War" shows he was born in Sorn and resided in Catrine.

He was a lucky lad to have been found wounded and evacuated. I think "Stewartry" has pointed out before that there isn't a record of any KOSB man (same brigade as Robert) being taken as a Prisoner of War.
