I'm waiting for a copy of the Order of Service for a new War Memorial which was unveiled/dedicated on Armistice Day, Sunday 11th November 2018.

There are a few photos on a Facebook page belonging to Loch Dubh Masonry Ltd., showing it's creation. See: https://www.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=976492275861080&id=303859819790999&__tn__=C-R

I made a mistake with George's village (which I've now amended) - it reads ARDUBH.

On the Roll of Honour he's listed as George D. MacDonald (Farrier, R.M.B.) but there isn't a wee 'a' against his name indicating he didn't die/was killed.

There is, however another George MacDonald, R.N.R. who might be E.R.A., H.M.S. Cressy, killed 22nd September 1914, age 41 and a native of Aberdeen?

The 2 names might possibly have been mixed up?
