Old photograph of the War Memorial in Newtyle, Angus, Scotland. A monument in the form of an obelisk about 19 feet high, to commemorated the men of Newtyle who fell in the Great War, was unveiled by the Earl of Strathmore. On the two sides are the following names: David Anderson, Robert Bain, Duncan Beaton, George Bell, Alex Brown, Andrew Cant, Frank Couper, James Couper, Alex Fleming, Fred Geekie, R.J.H. Johnstone, John McKenzie, W. McLaren, Andrew McQueen, James McQueen, George Mann, Benjamin Milne, Alex Millar, David Mitchell, Alex Spence. Headed by Pipe Major A. Lamond, a procession of Boy Scouts, ex soldiers, and the general public marched to the site of the memorial. Reverend Robert Wood, Parish Church, presided at the unveiling ceremony, and a prayer was offered by Reverend Walker, U.F. Church. The original village of Newtyle was centred around the church and what are now Kirkton Road and Smiddy road. Hatton Castle to the south and Newbigging to the north lie within the parish boundary.
