Inveraray - Argyll & Bute, Mid Argyll
UKNIM Ref no. 5969

The Inveraray memorial stands on the green overlooking Loch Fyne and features the bronze statue of a Highland Infantryman by the Glasgow sculptor Kellock Brown.





The memorial was erected by the builders Mungo Sinclair & Son of Furnace and was unveiled on 20th August 1922. The author Neil Munro's son Hugh is one of the men listed on the monument and Munro was still so distraught that he felt unable to attend the unveiling ceremony.

The front tablet bears the inscription:
IN MEMORY OF
THOSE
YOUNG LOVED LAMENTED
HERE
WHO DIED
IN THEIR COUNTRY'S SERVICE
1914 - 1918

THESE ARE THEY WHICH CAME
OUT OF GREAT TRIBULATION

And the WWII tablet is inscribed:
THIS ADDED STONE
COMMEMORATES THE MEN WHO GAVE THEIR
LIVES IN THE GREAT WAR 1939-1945

The third SMITH on the memorial was William's son and Ernest's nephew.

WILLIAM MURRAY SMITH age 48 Sergeant (2652) 1/9th (Dunbartonshire) Battalion, Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders.
William had been headmaster at West School, Maryculter, Kincardineshire where his two sons were born and where his first wife died in 1897 from typhoid due to a conaminated water supply to the schoolhouse. In 1901 he was lodging at the Lennox Arms Hotel in Lennoxtown and was headmaster of the Craighead School, Milton of Campsie, Dunbartonshire. His sons were living with his parents at Church Street in Inveraray, Argyllshire. William re-married in 1904 and he and his sons became members of the Territorial 9th A&SH. After he enlisted, he and his sons, Sergeant (1544) Henry Donald McIntyre Smith, and Sergeant (1545) Robert Campbell McIntyre Smith, landed with the 1/9th battalion in France in February 1915. The boys were wounded at the second battle of Ypres and William was wounded while he was visiting Henry who was waiting to be evacuated. William was removed to hospital but died of blood poisoning in the 14th General Hospital at Wimereux.

Robert's brother, Henry Donald McIntyre Smith, also was a member of the Territorial 9th A&SH and was mobilised as Corporal (1544) in August 1914. He was wounded a few hours after his brother and was visited by his father in the medical dug-out when a shell burst nearby. His father was wounded by shrapnel and later he died. Henry continued to serve with his battalion and as Sergeant (325070) he was discharged from the army in February 1919. His address was 11 Hilldrop Crescent, Campden Road, London N7.
Born 1895 in Maryculter, Kincardineshire, I believe he died (aged 65) in 1961 at Rowley Regis in Staffordshire.
