Hi,

I have started to research the names on the Cairneyhill WW1 Memorial and have identified most of the men.

I have been unable to identify the following man, listed as:

Gr Michael Conoboy RGA

Can anybody help? As he has a rather uncommon surname I thought he would be easy to identify, but not sofar.

Rgds,
Alex
