STOBS

OS map ref: NT506100

The simple stone cross stands on the B6399 Hawick to Newcastleton road at the bottom of the old entrance avenue to the old military Stobs Camp.
On its base are recorded the names of 12 men of the Slitrig valley who died in the Great War and one name from the Second War.
