I hadn't noticed before how many Artillery men are on the WW2 section of this memorial. 19 of them; and of those 9 served with 2nd (Oban) Airlanding Anti-Tank Battery of the 1st Airborne Division; and 5 of those were killed at Arnhem.
(3 men are not shown as "Airborne" on the memorial - P J MacDonald who died in the UK. D. Black and D J MacArthur were drowned off Italy)

Thanks for posting this, I was unaware of this Oban unit before. There's quite a good summary here:

And their Arnhem war diary here:
