This is a transcription from "For Remembrance and in Honour of those who lost their Lives in the South African War 1899-1902" by Sir James Gildea, published in 1911. This is a book which documents Boer War memorials in both Britain and abroad. Many of them make reference to Scottish Regiments.

Due to the age of the book, and the fact that this is a transcription, this memorial may no longer exist. I put this information online for reference. If anyone can provide a photo of this memorial we would be eternally grateful.

Quote:
“To the Glory of God and in Loving Memory of JOHN COLLINSON HARRISON, Lieutenant, Royal Scots Greys, younger son of Thomas Elliot Harrison, of Whitburn.
Born 9th August 1869, Died 3rd September 1900, aged 31, of wounds received in action near Belfast, 26th August 1900.
Buried at Pretoria, Transvaal, South Africa.

He gave his heart to his home, his life for Queen and Country and his soul to God

Erected by his loving brother and sisters”
