Name: BAIN, DAVID
Initials: D
Nationality: United Kingdom
Rank: Driver
Regiment/Service: Royal Field Artillery
Date of Death: 29/06/1916
Service No: 96473
Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead
Grave/Memorial Reference: A. L2. 1426.
Cemetery: KIRKINTILLOCH (AULD AISLE) CEMETERY

Section A is one of the older parts of the cemetery and unfortunately, as can be seen in the first photo on this thread, many of the stones have fallen. Hopefully Driver Bain will eventually have a CWGC stone as this one I wouldn't imagine will be legible for very much longer.

Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead
Grave/Memorial Reference: Sp. Mem.
Cemetery: KIRKINTILLOCH (AULD AISLE) CEMETERY

This stone is one of 4 'Special Memorials' - e.g. the men are known to be buried somewhere in the cemetery, but the stones do not mark their graves. All four stones are tucked away in a corner at the foot of Section A. Why Private Clark/Weir's stone has been left to become so overgrown is a mystery when the 3 others have the grass cut short round them.

Added: Having spoken to the Cemetery Staff, I enquired why this grave was so overgrown. It seems that they have been instructed not to cut back the grass/knotweed surrounding it as it comes back worse and thicker than ever. Plans are underway to use a glyphosate weedkiller shortly to attempt to solve the problem.
