Thanks Ken. I only looked on local Stirling threads for Gowanlock when I saw the article in today's Stirling Observer. So James T on the Cambusbarron memorial ISN'T the Scottish Rifles one. The quest goes on!!

It really is a fascinating puzzle Confused
I ran the name through the 1920 Valuation Roll to see if anyone came up in the Cambusbarron area (it didn't!)
Clearly the combination of TAIT and GOWANLOCK is a family "thing", so maybe the reason the name is there is once (or twice) "removed" - or maybe not Rolling Eyes

It's been a while and I'm still not certain that the GOWANLOCK named here is the same man but he did enlist in Dunblane so there is a local link (ish)

He is the same man who is named on the Dailly War Memorial in Ayrshire and on the Stow War Memorial in Midlothian as:

CPL. THOs. GOVENLOCK, BLACK WATCH
Thomas Govenlock age 26 Corporal (S/9028) 9th Battalion, Black Watch (Royal Highlanders)
In 1911 Thomas was an under-gardener on the Bargany Estate in Dailly, Ayrshire. He may have moved to the Stirling area as he enlisted in Dunblane and he joined his battalion in France in October 1915.
Born 1890 at South Blainslie in Melrose, Roxburghshire.
His father, a blacksmith, was living in Caddonfoot, Selkirkshire when Thomas was born and this is shown as his birthplace on SDGW & SNWM .
Son of Thomas and Jane Ann Henderson (Hodgeson) Govenlock of Lee Place, Stow.
Missing in Action on 24 October 1916 and named on the Thiepval Memorial to the Missing of the Somme, France.
