Not listed on UKNIWM

Located in Ballantrae Parish Church at OS Map Ref NX 083 825.

A little unusual to see a parish memorial paid for by the family of one man, although I have seen it once or twice before.

Among Edinburgh sculptor Alexander Carrick's business papers lodged with the National Monument Record of Scotland Office, Edinburgh, Manuscript Collection 22, is a receipt from Carrick dated 16th March 1922 for the Hughes Onslow memorial. I think it might be this memorial and the depiction of George Slaying the Dragon is fairly unusual in Scottish memorials.

It could also be the memorial at Barr where he is listed but I think it more likely that the reference is to the memorial at Herensford http://warmemscot.s4.bizhat.com/viewtopic.php?t=5170

Canmore says, without images, that there is also a War Memorial Communion Table and Rolls of Honour (plural) and implies there is also a WW2 plaque
