Gullane War Memorial

A cross above a square pillar on a larger square base.

The pillar has a wreath surmounting a downward pointing sword swathed by a garland inscribed “1914 – 1919”. The pillar’s square base is inscribed “1939 – 1945. Their name Liveth for Evermore.” The lower square panel reads, “In memory of the men of Gullane who gave their lives in the Great War.”

In the background is evidence of Golf’s Scottish Open which was played at Gullane the week before I took the photo:-
