Advie - Badenoch & Strathspey
UKNIWM Ref no. 8697

The Advie First World War memorial takes the unusual form of an octagonal freestone column set on a pedestal with gothic arcaded faces within which the commemoration and names of the dead are carved.
The monument stands on the road junction at Ellon Community Wood.

The Commemoration is carved within two of the blind arcades on the face of the pedestal and read:
LET US GIVE
OUR MOST HUMBLE
AND HEARTY THANKS
TO ALMIGHTY GOD
FOR HAVING GIVEN
US AND OUR ALLIES
THE VICTORY OVER
OUR ENEMIES
MAY WE ALL REMEMBER
THAT THE SAFETY
OF OUR EMPIRE
IS NOT OWING TO
THE STRENGTH OF MAN
BUT TO THE POWER
OF GOD
GOD SAVE THE KING
AMEN

------------

SONS OF THIS PLACE
LET THIS OF YOU
BE SAID
THAT YOU WHO LIVE ARE
WORTHY OF YOUR DEAD
THESE GAVE THEIR
LIVES THAT YOU
WHO LIVE MAY REAP
A RICHER HARVEST
ERE YOU FALL
ASLEEP

Memorial: Advie (2008 replacement memorial)
Location: opposite the village hall (about 200m east of the original site)
OS Ref: NJ124342


The memorial shown in the post above has been replaced by a modern replica, sited a couple of hundred yards east from the original, opposite the village hall (by the road leading into the village shown in the photo of the original memorial). This new memorial is dated 2008, the original one having been damaged beyond repair in 2006.













I tried to locate the remains of the old memorial which have been moved to Advie Cemetery. The cemetery has to be the most inaccessible cemetery that I have ever come across. It is accessed by going more than a mile along a bumpy unsurfaced former railway track bed, leading well out of the village. I gave up before reaching it, assuming I was in the wrong place, despite the signpost where I joined the railway track route. Now I am home and have seen its location on the OS map, I can see that it was not far beyond where I turned back.

Thanks for posting this. It's great to see so much effort taken to replicate the original memorial. The council could have taken the easy option and put the names on a simpler memorial but have gone to a great deal of expense.

It's just a shame we missed any news about this.

Regards

Adam

From the location of the old memorial it is quite likely that it was hit by a vehicle so they were perhaps able to get the cost of replacement paid by the insurance company.

I have put picture of the old damaged memorial on Canmore.

Strange,

Some of those commemorated have their date & circumstances of death included; others not.

I suppose it is easier to check things like that with all the various online sources.

The dates of death were on the old memorial too, so long before the internet.

Checked a couple of names at random and they don't seem to be listed by CWGC.
Is this a Roll of Honour listing all who served as well as those who died?
