About the memorial: Rectangular Brass Plaque with a red incised cross at top centre, all other lettering inscribed in black, except the leading letters which are in red. The Scottish War Memorials Project provides the following information, courtesy of Mr Jim Strawbridge - "I believe this to be Miss Kathleen Stewart, matron of the Welsh Hospital, Netley. She was trained at the Royal Infirmary, Sunderland and worked for some years as the Housekeeping Sister at Charing Cross Hospital and then Assistant Matron at the Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Edinburgh. She then became matron of York County Hospital where she was Commandant of the Military Section. She was a member of the Matron’s Council and delegate on the Central Committee for State Registration of Nurses. She was appointed matron by the Welsh Hospital Committee on the 15th July 1918 and died of influenza and pneumonia three months later. A memorial service took place at the Garrison Church, Netley and she was interred at Blair Atholl on Wednesday, 23rd October 1918. There is a brass plaque in Struan Church, Blair Atholl which reads “In affectionate remembrance of Kathleen Sinclair Stewart, A.R.R.C. matron Q.A.I.M.N.S.R. Died October 18th 1918. This tablet is erected by the Staff of the Welsh Hospital, Netley”. Three cemeteries in Blair Atholl have been searched but her grave has not yet been found. YMP5 as a late addition. Not recorded with the CWGC or YH." She died in the end-of-war influenza epidemic, so it can be allowed as a war memorial.
