Ross & Cromarty War Memorials

 

DINGWALL - Seaforths, Boer War 1899-1902


The Monument is a red granite pillar standing on a dressed plinth of the same material, all stood on a base of hewn granite with a Celtic cross on top.

The Cross has a hemisphere on each arm. Then there are panels of a Celtic motif, and below that a representation of the Seaforth Regimental Badge, with motto. Also, the word ASSAYE in a scroll, and an elephant under that.

180 names on the Monument are divided into ten lists, on three sides, DUKE of ALBANY'S IN MEMORY OF THEIR COMRADES WHO LOST THEIR LIVES IN SOUTH AFRICA 1899-1902.

An important aspect of this monument to the Seaforths is that it is one of only two; the other being in South Africa at Magersfontein.

October 16th 2015 The Monument featured in an important historic event on that date. This was when the 'Freedom of the Highlands' (specifically Highland Region) was bestowed on the Royal Regiment of Scotland. This included the Pipes and Drums and a contingent of the Regiment marching through Dingwall.
