Not listed on UKNIWM

Location in the present Douglas Ewart High School Building, Newton Stewart at OS Map Ref NX 407657.

This memorial in the form of a bronze plaque was originally located in the Ewart High School, Newton Stewart at OS Map Ref NX 409 657. The Ewart was a boys school and after WW1 it merged with the Douglas (girls school) to become the Douglas Ewart High School in the former premises of the Ewart High School. In June 1976 Douglas Ewart school moved up the road to its present premises and the memorial was moved at that time.

My thanks to Margaret Allan who arranged access and provided all the information. The plaque is situated on a wall in a corridor that leads to the adjacent Merrick Leisure Centre.

Original location in Ewart High School





Current location in Douglas Ewart High School




As usual, please PM me if you would like higher res photos.

Although I'm posting these details the research has been a joint effort with Mike Morley.

I should also mention that in 1914 the River Cree, which runs through Newton Stewart, marked the county boundary between Kirkcudbrightshire and Wigtonshire, so Ewart High School pupils came from both counties.
