"They never fail who die in a great cause. They augment the deep and sweeping thoughts which overpower all others, and conduct the world at last to Freedom."
"Greater Love Hath No Man Than This That A Man Lay Down His Life For His Friends"
Inch Church is at Castle Kennedy, outside the gates of Lochinch Castle. The old graveyard and ruined church are inside the grounds of the castle. The memorial is a bronze plaque decorated with thistles and roses which is attached to what may have been the original door of the church facing onto the A75. There appears to have been a short avenue leading to the road which is now blocked off and a new entrance made off the side road.
There is no memorial for W.W.II
