Jim

Thanks for these extra photos. I didn't have time for close-ups when I was passing through Dingwall.

Any idea of the sculptor?
It's a cracking memorial.

From UKNIWM;
Craftsmen
Name Occupation
MR JOHN J JOASS ARCHITECT
MR JAMES ALEXANDER STEVENSON SCULPTOR

From Scottish Architects;
Name: John James Joass
Designation: Architect
Born: 1868
Died: 10 May 1955
Bio Notes: John James Joass was born in Dingwall in 1868, and was the son of William Cumming Joass, architect there. After a short period of basic training in his father's office from 1883 to 1885, he was articled to John Burnet & Son in Glasgow, and studied at Glasgow School of Art. He remained there until 1890 when he moved to the office of Robert Rowand Anderson, from where he won the Pugin Studentship in 1892. The following year he moved to London to spend a year in the office of Ernest George & Peto, from which he transferred to that of Edward John May in October 1894. He passed the qualifying exam in that year and was awarded the Owen Jones studentship, enabling him to travel to Italy and Sicily, his travels prior to that date having been limited to Scotland and England. He was admitted ARIBA on 10 June 1895, his proposers being George, John McKean Brydon, and Allan Graham, whom he had known in Glasgow.
Joass joined John Belcher's practice at 20 Hanover Square, London in 1896, briefly working with Arthur Beresford Pite, who left in 1897 to commence his own practice. Belcher took Joass into partnership in 1905.

Joass was elected FRIBA on 2 December 1912, proposed by Belcher, George and Reginald Blomfield. He continued the practice after Belcher's death in 1916.

Joass's chief hobby was sailing. He designed the latest vessel 'Macnab' himself; it was both a cruiser and ocean racer and was anchored at Poole Harbour.

Joass died on 10 May 1952 after a three-month illness. His practice was carried on by his assistant of many years H Bramwell and Leslie K Watson who had joined him more recently.

From Ross & Cromarty Heritage

THE LATE HUGH SUTHERLAND, N.F., DINGWALL

Private Hugh Sutherland, Northumberland Fusiliers (Tyneside Irish), killed in action in April, was a son of Mrs Sutherland, The Meadows, Dornoch. About 24 years of age, he was a grocer to trade, and was employed as foreman with Mr Hugh Ross, merchant, Dingwall. He enlisted in the Ross Mountain Battery in October 1915, and was subsequently transferred to the Tyneside Irish with many others of the R.M.B. A keen athlete, he was a well known footballer, and was one of the stalwarts of the Dingwall Shopboys Club.
A photograph appears today.


Hugh Sutherland is listed on the Dingwall Memorial as Driver, Ross Mountain Battery, RGA. As you can see from the article he was transferred to the Tyneside Irish.

He was killed in action at Arras on 9th April 1917 and is buried in Orchard Dump Cemetery. He is also listed on the Dornoch War Memorial.
