A stone tablet mounted above what I think is the door to the civic chambers.

for the same plaques in Dornoch and Tain.

I think there may also be another one in Stornoway but I can't confirm that yet.

This plaque was unveiled on the same day as the town's civic war memorial as reported on page 8 of ‘The Scotsman’ dated Thursday, 1st November 1923.

…On the same occasion [as the unveiling of Wick War Memorial] the bronze memorial tablet gifted by the Seaforth Highlanders Association was unveiled with similar ceremony by Major-General A. Buchanan Ritchie, Commanding the 51st Division. The tablet has been fixed in front of the Town and County Hall.
