Erected by The Members of Drumgelloch Bible and Crown Loyal Orange Lodge No. 6

In memory of The Brethren who fell in The Great War 1914 1919

JAMES NICOL, Scottish Rifles, June 1915 (Also listed on a Family Stone)
DANIEL RITCHIE, Black Watch, September 1915
WILLIAM J. McKEE, A. & S. H., November 1919 (known as James McKee?)

There are no William KcKee's listed on CWGC in 1919, leading to the presumtion that William J. McKee was known by his middle name James.

There is also a William T. McKee listed but I am uncertain that this will be the same William (or James) McKee who died in 1919.
