As you can see I've merged your two requests into one since they were for brothers.

We have very few overseas graves here, however someone may have photographs of these headstones from a trip to the battlefields.

Are they realtives of yours?

Regards

Adam

They were both listed in the Peoples Journal, Dundee War Memorial Supplement. You can see the document at http://warmemscot.s4.bizhat.com/viewtopic.php?t=2633&mforum=warmemscot

I may be wrong but I don't think there are any names on the memorial itself, just the People's Journal supplement that was issued at the time.

You may find the names on church or school memorials with a bit of hunting.
