In 1994, Hugh Small visited Ayr Cemetery in Scotland. There he recorded the graves of WWI soldiers of the Royal Newfoundland Regiment. The Cemetery contains one large communal gravestone and 14 single gravestones.

There is also a monument that remembers all the Soldiers buried elsewhere in Scotland. It has a Caribou cap badge etched in metal:

and the inscription:

"To the Glory of God and in Memory of those Men of the Newfoundland Contingent who lie buried elsewhere in Scotland"

We will remember them.
