Lieutenant WALTER ALEXANDER CLIFF-McCULLOCH *
Age 29 on 27 February 1916

Private JAMES HENDERSON DOIG +
A
ge 33 on 02 February 1917

Sergeant ALEXANDER PETER CLIFF-McCULLOCH *
Age 28 on 01 June 1944

*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 Kirkclaugh 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 favorite books, as the library remains as it was then, we will always wonder, what would have been?

+ We don't know much history of Private Doig, We can only image that his parents were in service at Kirkclaugh while he was serving in the Canadian Armed Forces, so he must have immigrated at some point to Canada. Only those of us who have seen action in a war zone can appreciate life to it's fullest. 

May their souls be Bless.
