About the memorial: Houses- Each house bears a plaque on which is inscribed the last message which David Scrymgeour-Wedderburn sent to his men before the battle of Anzio. The official Historic Scotland Description is -Formal lay out of traditional single-storey cottages, harled with margins, arched doorpieces with fanlights, pantiled. N. range 3 cottages with piend roof; E. range 3 cottages, piend roof, centre tetrastyle R-doric portice with pediment formerly at Birkhill; S. cottage 4-window and centre door. Rubble linking wall, front wall and steps, late Georgian cast-iron urns at terminal piers. The columns date from 1812-14 and belonged to a porch added at that date. In 1858 the columns were dumped and the bases used in building gatepiers. The capitals were too badly damaged to be used again and casts were made. The pediment was improvised from the dressed masonry of disused buildings in the garden at Birkhill. (Letter from the Earl of Dundee 14 April 1969)
