This is a very large cemetery and very well looked after. Unfortunately the weather has worn away some of the detail on some older gravestones so I may have missed some graves with military inscriptions including some Jim couldn't find either.

I visited this cemetery twice and have managed to get most of the ones Jim missed first time round but the following are still outstanding which I suspect are on badly weathered stones:

CAMERON, DUNCAN
Rank: Gunner
Regiment/Service: Royal Garrison Artillery
Unit Text: 4th Highland Mountain Bde.
Age: 27
Date of Death: 06/03/1915
Service No: 1295
Additional information: Son of Ewen and Christina Cameron, of Buchanan Tee, Oban.
Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead
Grave/Memorial Reference: B. 302.
Cemetery: OBAN (PENNYFUIR) CEMETERY

MOLLOY, MARY MACDOUGALL
Rank: Third Officer
Regiment/Service: Women's Royal Naval Service
Unit Text: H.M.S. President III
Date of Death: 16/03/1945
Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead
Grave/Memorial Reference: Sec. I. Grave 207.
Cemetery: OBAN (PENNYFUIR) CEMETERY

This is my version of the CWGC Cross which Jim has already posted. I will use it to break the CWGC burials from the other headstones in this topic.
