Unveiling in 1922, this monument is by Francis William Doyle-Jones. He won commissions for a number of English War memorials, but I think this is his only Scottish one. It bears many similarities with the one he produced for Brighouse in Yorkshire, see

Spelling/style of surnames &c., as publication.

The Glasgow Herald, Wednesday, 1st. August, 1917.
"In Memoriam.
HORNE.-

Faithful unto death. - Inserted by his Father, Mother and Sisters, 26 Wood Street, Partick."

Only mention of 'Angus' is in the Herald as above, but not a newspaper error as it is in the original death intimation from 1916:-
