War Memorial Centenaries

Dornoch War Memorial

It is now over a century since the Great War, came to an end in 1918. In the period shortly after the war, war memorials were established in most communities to commemorate those who had lost their lives in the war. After the Second World War, additional names were added to those memorials and some have had names added in relation to subsequent conflicts.

Most of the memorials were built and dedicated in the period 1921-1922 although one or two were a little later, so several of the war memorials in the Creich & Kincardine area are marking their centenaries shortly.  

The centenary commemorations are:

  • Kincardine (Ardgay) – Monday 15th August, 2.45 for 3pm
  • Rogart – Saturday 24th September, 10.30am
  • Lairg – Friday 30th September, 10.45 for 11am 

All local residents are welcome, and the organisers would particularly like to hear from anybody with family connections to those named on the memorials, or to people who died in the many subsequent conflicts. If you have any information speak to James who can put you in touch with the appropriate organisers.
