Argueably this is a civic memorial since it was dedicated at the same time as the Parish War Memorial. The latter was entrusted to the Parish Council whereas the clock was entrusted to the Kirk Session.
I finally decided that if I were looking for it on this Forum I'd look under Churches.



The following is from a (very) long report in the Kirkcudbright Advertiser of 15 October 1920



The photo and the newspaper report are from Graham and Margaret Wright of www.gatehouse-folk.org.uk

Borgue church has been sold to become a private residence. I think that the tower can be regarded as safe for now though!
