UKNIWM Ref - Not listed

Location in Stranraer High Kirk at OS Map Ref NX 056 60

When I photographed this memorial I did not see any names inscribed but Louise McCandlish at the church refers to "the brass lectern bearing the names of Andrew Ferguson, Kenneth Coulston, Ian McDowall and George McKean". I will try and obtain additional photos of that inscription.

St Margaret's Church was demolished in the 1960s and the memorial was moved from there to its current location. This is a photo of the High Kirk (current location). Please see
http://warmemscot.s4.bizhat.com/viewtopic.php?t=5689 for further details of the original church and also a plaque memorial to the same four men.
