This Second World War tablet was so highly polished that reflections and glare from the sun were very troublesome so I include a transcription.

You've beaten me to it posting a transcription. I reckon your doubtful one is

Andrew Burns H.G. - Home Guard

Sorry Adam Embarassed At the moment I'm just working my way through all of the memorials that I've transcribed, region by region, so there isn't much of a pattern to it. Basically if the names aren't transcribed yet, and I have a transcription, I'll post it.
I think your right about Home Guard...I never thought of that. I wonder how many Home Guard casualties there actually were?

Post away with your transcriptions. I've got plenty of other things to post.

The Home Guard one is interesting. I suppose it depends when they died if they got a CWGC headstone and a mention of a war memorial. If they died on duty I take it they are commemorated. Here's a list of Home Guard from the SNWM database index. I haven't looked up their actual entries or comapred it to the CWGC database so I don't know where they are all from. I've highlighted Greenlaw's Volunteer Burns.

ADAMSON , Archibald , Volunteer , Home Guard , 13-Mar-41
ANDERSON , Kenneth James , Volunteer , Home Guard , 08-Apr-41
BLUE , Alexander , Volunteer , Home Guard , 06-Nov-40
BROWN , James Willocks , Lieutenant , Home Guard , 21-Apr-43
BURNS , John , Volunteer , Home Guard , 13-Mar-41
BURNS , Andrew Common , Volunteer , Home Guard. , 26-Jul-42
CAMERON , Norman , Corporal , Home Guard , 21-Apr-43
CLABBY , James , Volunteer , Home Guard , 06-May-41
CLARK , Andrew , Volunteer , Home Guard , 07-May-41
CONNER , James , Volunteer , Home Guard. , 21-Apr-43

EDDIE , Charles William , Volunteer , Home Guard. , 08-Aug-42

REYBURN , Hugh Morton , Corporal , Home Guard , 14-Mar-41
RILEY , Richard John , Volunteer , Home Guard , 14-Mar-41
ROBERTSON , Allan McCorkindale , Volunteer (Fire Watcher) , Home Guard , 13-Mar-41
SCOTT , Nathaniel , Volunteer , Home Guard , 14-Mar-41
SMITH , Robert James , Volunteer , Home Guard , 19-May-41
STEEL , William Telfer , Volunteer , Home Guard , 07-Apr-41
THOMSON , William Abel , Volunteer , Home Guard , 03-Jul-43
WATSON , Joseph , Volunteer , Home Guard , 06-May-41
WEST , William Wettinhall , Corporal , Home Guard , 07-Apr-41

There are quite a few names from Spring 1941 which would probably place these men as casualties of the Lufwaffe attacks on the Clyde.
