OS Map Ref: NT 270 730

Believed to be one of a number of listed (on UKNIWM) but not described memorials to Royal Scots in St Giles Cathedral. I believe this to be one of:-
UKNIWM 8797, 8798, 8799, 8800, 8801, 8802, 8803, 8804, 8805 or 8806

Very difficult (for me) to get a readable photo in the low light conditions of the cathedral so here is a full transcription as well.

TO/ THE GLORY OF GOD/ IN MEMORY OF/ LT-COLONEL S.R. DUNN (T.D.)/
MAJORS J GRAY (T.D.)&/ J. N. HENDERSON/ CAPTAINS R.W.G. RUTHERFORD/ G. McCRAE J. ROBERTSON/ G.A.S. ROSS J.D. POLLOCK/
& R.E. MACKIE/ LIEUTENANTS C.F. ALLAN/ A. YOUNG & P.F. CONSIDINE/
2ND LIEUTS C. PATERSON/ T.D. AITCHISON R.J. GIBSON/ & W.J. JOHNSTONE/ WARRANT OFFICERS NON-/ COMMISSIONED OFFICERS AND MEN/ OF THE 4TH BN THE ROYAL SCOTS/ (QUEEN’S EDINBURGH RIFLES) WHO/ GAVE THEIR LIVES IN THE BATTLE OF/ GULLY RAVINE.
