The Monzievard & Strowan Memorial was unveild in 1921.  The architect was Mr. Reginald Fairlie of Edinburgh who was probably responsible for the overall design of the memorial, Carrick had already worked with Fairlie on the Moffat war memorial in 1920 (both Moffat and Monzievard are carved from Doddington Stone).  I feel certain Carrick would have been entirely responsible for the design of the Pelican sculpture.  The bird representing sacrifice was to appear again in a more stylized form in Carrick's relief carving for the doorway of The Little Sister's of the Poor in Edinburgh.
