Stratherrick War Memorial

You want evocative Scottish war memorials?  I can do that.

You won’t be surprised to hear that this is an old military road,…

…and I’m off that way.  Looks rather nice.

    Wow! Incredible… what a location! Memorial on a rock with an amazing view. I guess those men would have known this sight and loved home, the names; Farquhar McDonald, Angus McPherson, Donald McGillivray… Scotsmen.

    Have you been to the War Memorials at Comrie or Crieff? My great-grandparents emigrated from Comrie to Australia in the late 1880s. One of my distant cousins from Comrie was in the Black Watch during WW2 and family folklore says on a ship an officer asked him to change places for the officer had a dog which was not allowed in the officers quarters. There was a Stuka raid and the place where the officer was had a bomb explode there and many men were killed including this officer. My distant cousin survived. True story? Not sure…

    The Crieff War Memorial has some Australian names on there which I am intrigued about… Canadians and an American too?
