It is arguable whether this counts as a war memorial, but I think it should be included so here it is. Not listed on UKNIWM, I happened to notice the plaque when walking by this row of cottages on Glencaple Rd in Dumfries. The plaque is just visible in the centre of the row of cottages in the second picture.

I have no idea of the correct address or name of the cottages.

These cottages are now on the WMR (ex UKNIWM), as report 71627

My understanding is that they are a perfectly valid memorial, as they are essentially the same standing as Westfield Village, Lancaster; even to the extent of being a garden village association.

That association is now renamed Houses for Heroes Scotland and is still building new properties.

Spoons,

Can you remember, by chance, where on Glencaple Road these cottages are?

I've walked the road as far as the Crichton today, as I need to get a 10 figure grid reference for WMR purposes, but couldn't find them, so my eyseight clearly needs a prompt.

Thanks

PS-I do, however, draw the line at wandering around the Crichton Grounds to get a 10 figure GR fix on the Pte Murray (Afghanistan) memorial tree. That could take forever.
