War monument, St Andrews, Scotland

This memorial set into a recess in the fence of the ruins of St Andrews Cathedral was designed by Sir Robert Lorrimer (1864-1929), the architect of the Scottish National War Memorial at Edinburgh Castle. The white granite memorial has a Celtic cross above a sword on the shaft.
The dates on the memorial are for the years 1914-1918 and 1939-1945. In the recess behind the memorial names are engraved on a series of metal plates.
