Does anyone know the location of this memorial? The UKNIWM has it listed only as Beside B9101 in ref no. 8701

Turn off the A96 towards Auldearn (from the Elgin side) and it about 200 yards along the road on the left hand side. You can't miss it.

Last year I wrote a book on Auldearn War Memorial (with Ardclach) with a gazetteer of the names from the memorial to include biblio info, place of burial, newspaper entries, award of medals, etc.
Published by the Nairn Bookshop price 7.99.

The location has now been corrected on the WMR report.

Unfortunately I can't add the names as I can't find a legible photograph of the memorial
