Hello Stovie,

Thank you very much for sharing the information with us - it's very much exactly the kind of thing we're looking for.

Could you have another go at posting the photo please?

I've added a wee note on page 15 making reference to your post above.

Thanks again and welcome to the Forum!

Anne

I was in Old Monkland Cemetery recently and the groundsmen told me of a new CWGC stone.
There is already a posting on page 3 relating to this man, J.R. McCosh and I can now add the new stone to the listings here.
The CWGC stone sits at the top of the "Mound".
