SANDHEAD WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Eric McQuarrie 2004

Memorial stands outside the village of Sandhead, at the side of the main road from Stoneykirk. Made of granite it is for the Parish of Stoneykirk that is 3 miles away. It lists 41 names of the first war and 4 of the second. Two brothers' names at the bottom on the south face look as if they have been added as an afterthought as they are not cast in bronze like the rest of the first war ones. The second war names are on the west or facing side as you approach it. Some Regiments are Nign. Regiment. The Can.G.A. The Aus. Ex force which may have been The Australian Expeditionary Force. It could have been allied with the Aust.I.F. i.e. Australian Infantry Force. The N. & D.R may be the Nottinghamshire And Derbyshire Regiment and the D.W.R. could have been The Duke Of Wellingtons Regiment. Another one is (A.I.Y.) Australian Imperial Yeomanry. An unusual rank is a F.C. IN THE R.A.F. (Flight Cadet). (Grid Reference: NX097504).
