Coaltown of Balgonie War Memorial

Coaltown of Balgonie is a small village near to where I live. Desopite its proximity I had not photographed its War Memorial till last year.

The Memorial takes the form of a stone cross, with unusual floral ends on its arms and apex, atop a stone pillar. It’s set off Main Street (the B 9130) beside Victoria Hall.
