Under the point of the sword is a list of battlefields where the men fell. France, Belgium, the Balkans, Palestine, Mesapotamia, Egypt and The Sea. On the 6 o'clock face of the plinth is the dedication, and the bronze names plaques are on the 3 o'clock and 6 o'clock faces of the plinth 1 for the KOSB, the other for other regiments (c IWM Register). The IWM Register and the Scottish War Memorials Project say it is close to the Plough In, but this has closed. However, the village is not very big and it is on the main (indeed only) road.
