I'm not sure what the crosses beside four of the names stand for?
Initially I thought they were casualties, but I can't find any of them on CWGC. Perhaps it's for awards, being missing, wounded or a POW?

There is a Roy Thomson of the South Wales Borderers from nearby Kirkden/Friockheim who was killed, but not til 1918.

James Brown and Alexander Wilson are on the Lunan War Memorial. James Brown was in the Seaforths however and didn't die until 1917.

Strange that the Arbroath roll of honour book and the Lunan church roll of honour has him listed as ROY THOMSON but the CWGC and the SNWM have him listed as ROBERT THOMSON

From working on my own family history, there were a few 'Roys' in various generations - every one of them actually being Roberts.

I presumed from that, that it was a generally accepted 'pet' name for Robert.
