This is a photograph I took a few years ago of the memorail cross which stood in the fields on Fenwick Moor just opposite the junction of the main Ayr Road and the Mearnskirk Hospital Road. It could only be reached by climbing over a barbed wire fence and bog-trotting. I havn't seen it for some time now as it has been by-passed by the new Ayr Dual Carriageway Road, it was in a fairly neglected state back then so hope its survived the road builders.


The inscription reads:

JOHN POLSON CORBETT

KILLED IN ACTION 19TH JULY 1944
