Ross & Cromarty War Memorials

 

CONON BRIDGE

 The Monument is a pillar of grey granite standing on a similar plinth,with a Celtic Cross on the top. The pillar carries the following text down the pillar.

TO THE GLORY
OF GOD
AND IN GRATEFUL
REMEMBRANCE OF
THE OFFICERS
NON COM OFFICERS
AND MEN
FROM THE PARISH
OF URQUHART (ROSS)
WHO GAVE THEIR LIVES
FOR KING AND COUNTRY
IN THE GREAT WARS
1914-1919
1939-1945
ERECTED BY
THE INHABITANTS
OF THE PARISH
IN LOVING MEMORY

 

 Below that is a small panel carrying a Celtic inter-twined motif, and below that, again, an image of a wreath with
inter-twined serpent images through it.

It is located in the middle of the village at the junction of the A862 and the B91653. The names are on a bronze plaque facing down the street. It is a pleasant site with trees behind the monument and a flower bed in front. Map reference NH544555 on Landranger Sheet 26.

NOTE: The list below is as it is on the Monument, that is, there are no spaces where they might be expected. The 'B???' is because there seems to have been a mistake in the lettering. The raised lettering at that point seems to be 'BERET'. However, a check with the Commonwealth War
Graves Commission did not help.
