This photograph shows the headstone at the grave of William Angus VC, in Wilton Cemetery, Wilton Road, Carluke.

The replica of the Victoria Cross was designed and manufactured by Mr Angus's engineer son, the late Nugent Angus. Nugent made the replica and fixed it to the headstone in 1975, covering an original carving of the medal into the granite of the stone. The original had weathered and was barely visible.

William Angus VC died just two days after the 44th anniversary of his brave deed. His last annual telegram of thanks from the Martin family was delivered to him in hospital.
