"Lest We Forget"- Scottish Memorials: Military Monday


For this month of November when we remember our ancestors who died in war, I thought I would post a series of images of war memorials, both in Britain and abroad - last week England, this week in Scotland.

 - This is the imposing war memorial in the town of Hawick, where I live in the Scottish Borders.  The setting is Wilton Lodge Park, a former 107 acre estate of the Pringle family, whose  home is now the town museum displaying illuminated rolls of honour of the war dead.   This photograph was taken last winter.

Below - The war memorial at Oban in Argyll on the west coast of Scotland.

  1. Susan, War memorials really do tell a story about the communities where they're situated. Each name on each monument is the "front line" of their own personal and family tragedy. This is a great idea for November...thanks. Pauleen
