Details Hillside War Memorial, designed by Montrose sculptor William Lamb (who was himself injured in the Great War). It takes the form of a massive tapering square sided column or pedestal of rough freestone blocks with polished granite tablets inset into two of the faces. It is surmounted by a British 3-inch Stoke Mortar, an unusual, and possibly unique, adornment perhaps symbolising the mechanised industrial warfare experienced by Lamb himself. It commemorates those from the parish who died in World War I, World War II and the Korean War. Full transcription of memorial held in AAS Digital Archive.
