About the memorial: The War Memorial below the village green has the badges of the principal regiments of casualties carved in sandstone. Designed in 1919, it was constructed in red sandstone the following year by a Hawick firm. The total cost, including architect’s fees and the inscribed lead tablet below, was approximately £300. Designed by the Glasgow architect Alexander Nisbet Paterson. He designed a number of war memorials, of which the one at Ancrum was the first.
