About the memorial: Brass Plaque with raised lettering on wooden backboard. The father died on the 23rd of August, which leads to speculation on the Scottish War Memorials posting that he may have been one of the first Scottish officers killed at the Battle of Mons, if not the first. It is also suggested that he might be the first Australian born casualty of the war, the family having moved to Australia but later returned. There is also a plaque to the father in Monzie Kirk, WMO 268533.
