Photo kindly provided by NigelS from GWF.

This memorial is at Nonnebossen, N of Menin Rd, 5km W Ypres. Although it might appear to be a gravestone/grave marker, his exact grave location is not known and he is listed on the Menin Gate so therefore this should be considered to be a memorial.

Capt Brodie is listed on the Aldearn memorial and also at Ardclach and Ferness. There is an individual memorial in the form of a stained glass window at Aldearn which is not yet on the forum.

A great deal of info about the man (including a photo) can be found at
