Ross & Cromarty War Memorials

 

INVERGORDON

The Monument is a pillar of reddish granite, without a cross, and similar to a small Cenotaph. About half a metre from the top there is a band of a celtic-type design. On the side facing down the High Street, there is a large bronze sword with a palm-like frond on either side. Under the sword is a bronze wreath. There are no names on this side of the Monument. Well-placed for visibility at the east end of High Street, and at a road junction with Seabank Road.

See link on navigation bar at foot for the HMS Natal disaster.

Also on the front, on the stepped plinth on which the Monument stands, are the words below -

Map Reference is NH714 687 on Sheet 21.
