*These two losses were catastrophic for The
(Cliff-)McCulloch of Kirkclaugh as it wiped out two potentially
great new senior branches of the clan. We often go to the war memorial dedicated
to them on the
hills and we ask ourselves?: What would have been had not so many young men died during
such a horrible
period? When we see what is left over of their tennis court, we see
the stable blocks, we imagine them riding horses or sitting in library, what were their
library remains as it was then, we will always wonder, what would have been?

Only those of us who have seen action in a war zone can appreciate life to it's fullest.
May their souls be Bless.
