What a really attractive memorial! Thanks for tracking it down Morag Very Happy

Here's the man who started my enquiry about it, from the Dornock memorial in Dumfriesshire:

KENNETH G. COMRIE
Kenneth Gordon Comrie age 27 Major (110479) Royal Army Veterinary Corps.
Kenneth was educated at Eastriggs School, Annan and Dumfries Academies and at the Royal (Dick) College of Veterinary Surgeons in Edinburgh from where he qualified in 1938. He was awarded his B.Sc. from Edinburgh University in 1939. He was commissioned in February 1940 and went to the Middle East in November 1942. He was killed by shell fire while assisting the 17th Indian Mule Company at San Michele near Monte Cassino.
Born 1916 in Sidi Salem, Egypt. Son of Leslie John and Catherine (Bickerton) Comrie of Sidi Salem, Egypt and of The Crescent, Eastriggs. Husband of Isobel Susan (Brebner) Comrie who he married in Hollingbourne, Kent in 1940.
Killed in Action on 12 February 1944 and buried in Cassino War Cemetery, Italy.
Also named on the Old College memorial in Edinburgh University.
