Unveiled by the Duke of Atholl - May 18th 1924

Quite an unusual concept. Will have to try and find out a little more of the background. Unless someone on the forum can help?

Is the plaque in a massive boulder? How would you describe this memorial? It is unusual

Adam,

Notes from Historic Scotland;

Description:
Paved hemicycle with standing stone: bronze plaques.
c. 1920.

I must, when I get time, get through a local paper to uncover the thinking/meaning behind it.

I stayed at the Atholl Arms about four years ago. No camera, but I did nip out and buy a pad and pen.

BLAIR ATHOLL, PERTHSHIRE

Memorial at North end of village opposite the Atholl Arms Hotel. A semi-circular wall encloses a large boulder with the dates 1914 and 1918 inscribed on its face. Three bronze panels are set into the wall behind the boulder. The left and right hand panels are for WW1 the middle panel for WW2. The left-hand panel has Black Watch and Scottish Horse names, and the right hand panel has the others. The names are listed by Regiment, then Rank, and then alphabetically. The WW2 names on the centre panel are listed alphabetically.
