Drumnadrochit & Glen Urquhart - Inverness District
UKNIWM Ref no. 5907

The Drumnadrochit and Glen Urquhart war memorial is a grey granite monument of an unusual design featuring a turreted tower set on a tapering pedestal and low rustic base, and surmounted by a small cross. The commemoration and names of the WWI dead are set in black lead lettering on the faces of the pedestal, and those for WWII are on a tablet set into the face of the base.
The monument stands in a railed enclosure by the roadside in the village.

This is a well looked after Memorial; it is lit up after dark:

Ken

Nothing in the list of Army abbreviations so no idea.

She is buried in Klagenfurt War Cemetery, Austria but that doesn't help.

Having found close-ups of the Second World War panel on another website (hint, we need better images of the panel here!) I think the abbreviation is E.I.I. rather then E.L.I.

No clues to what that would stand for though.
