Sergeant/Pilot John Hamish Malet-Warden was killed in action on 17 August 1941 and is named on the Pennycuick family grave in Challoch (All Saints) Churchyard near Newton Stewart in Dumfries and Galloway but not on any local War Memorials. However sometimes after 2007 his name was added to the Sorbie Parish War Memorial in Garlieston, Wigtownshire. Do you know why and by whom?
