The War Memorials of Sutherland

In order to see the latest version of this page please refresh your page, many links have been updated.

We now have a tribute section on the War Memorials also.  You will find lots more information there including many individual stories of the brave lads of Sutherland.  Allow plenty of time to visit. 

More photographs in our albums HERE

An index listing names of all those named on the memorials, alphabetically, showing the parish, their rank and in most cases the Regiment or Service they served with is shown HERE.  You will also need the key to the index HERE.

I would like to thank all those willing photographers who helped me achieve this huge, worthwhile, project.
Bill O'Brien, Hector Macrae, Mary Young, Val Hamilton, Edward Paxton, Angi Lamb & Adam Brown.

"Somewhere in Blood Soaked France" by Alasdair Sutherland tells the story of one soldier from Tongue parish.  
"Never More", also by Alasdair, is the story of Tongue, Melness & Skerray War Memorials.  
Alasdair's website has more information.  Take note of the links running down the left hand side with information on all mentioned in Never More. I notice that Amazon has both books for sale.

Adam Brown, native of Brora, Clyne, now living in Edinburgh, has a large internet forum which discusses not only the War Memorials of Sutherland but those of all Scotland with many details of those named on them. Many military items covered here also.  Visit Adam's website.
