WILLIAM JOHN McKNIGHT, 3rd Radio Officer, Merchant Navy
Accidentally drowned in India 24th March 1946 aged 20 years
Grandson of William J. and Margaret McKnight (nee Russell)



I have made the presumption that this man's surname was McKnight as there's no information on the inscription other than the surname of his grandparents.

ROBERT McNAIR, died 11th March 1960 aged 55

It is unknown whether the photos attached to the stone are of the Robert McNair on the inscription.

(I can't find any Robert McNairs listed on the Armed Forces Memorial)
