From the Scotsman of 2nd May 1921

Menmuir

A memorial to the men belonging to the Memmuir district of Forfarshire was unveiled at Tigerton on Sunday by Captain Scott-Erskine, Balhall. The monument is of Aberdeenshire granite, and contains the names of 17 soldiers, three of them being brothers. A religious service was conducted by Rev. D. A. Vipont and Rev. A. Munro


I take it the three brothers are George, Alexander and Benjamin Taylor.

Regards

Adam

Menmuir is near Kirriemuir so is this the Second World War name?
