There is only one stone in this section - that of James Crawford

James Crawford served with the 5th argylls. He is buried at Lancashire Landing Cemetery, Gallipoli. James had served 10 years with the local Territorials. He died of wounds sustained on the charge at Atchi Baba on the 12th July and was buried 600 yards north of West Beach, Gallipoli. His family lived at 66 Kelly Street in Greenock.

You will by now have heard the 5th Argylls and Gallipoli mentioned quite a few times. This local battalion suffered the single worst day of casualties in the history of Greenock. It had a profound effect on the local area. Over 130 died that day. We will remember them!

We will head over to Section F
