Girvan (Doune) Cemetery on the West Coast of Scotland seems to have more than its share of interesting gravestones so I thought I would share a few.

This one to a father and son

An American grave in CWGC care

And another with a private stone

You can see the rest on the Scottish War Graves Project.

2 French sailors from Longwy SS – does anyone know anything about this ship other than she hit a mine?

I tried to post pics, but the system won't let me post any more on this thread

And this is all I could find on George !

A Cadet named G.A. Brader, American Army, died 4th April 1918, and as shown on the headstone he came from Pennsylvania. He is also commemorated on the Turnberry memorial that has 52 names engraved of all the servicemen from the R.F.C, R.A.F, R.A.A.F, R.NZ.A.F and the USA Aviation.
