This memorial is not listed on UKNIWM

There is another (listed) memorial in Tynron (UKNIWM 44338) but this is a different memorial.

Easy to find, it is at the main T junction in the hamlet. OS GR NX 805 928

SDGW states Private Robert Turner 203899 of 5/6 Cameronians (Scottish Rifles) - born at Inverchaolin, Argyllshire on 6th March 1891. Killed in action 20th May 1917 so it seems this is likely the man.

From Gladys Cuttle's book 'Tynron War Memorial and Parish Memories'.
