Dumfries war memorial

Was in Dumfries the other day and saw this war memorial which I thought was very striking. Or I did until I discovered I have no idea how to post it! Any grown ups give me a clue or you can get it on google images!
Poignant post. Men with the same names as those brave souls named on the memorial and from that same area filled the ranks of The King's Own Scottish Borderers when I served in that wonderful regiment.

Quite a mix of Regiments and Corps, Camel and Cycle Corps both in there and pretty much every Scottish Regiment.

SAI, is that South African Infantry.

And Pte James McKenzie, VC, Scots Guards
"8185 Private James Mackenzie, late 2nd Battalion,
Scots Guards.
For conspicuous bravery at Rouges' Banes
on the 19th December, in rescuing a
severely wounded man from in front of the
German trenches, under a very heavy fire
and after a stretcher-bearer party had been
compelled to abandon the attempt.
Private Mackenzie was subsequently
killed on that day whilst in the performance
of a similar act of gallant conduct."
