Over the past few years I have been collecting the names from the war memorials of Sutherland and also searching through databases, rolls of honour, old newspapers etc. for information on those who had a connection with Sutherland who have died in the wars of the 20th Century. I will post all the data I have here split into manageable chunks.

There are men listed here who enlisted in Golspie, the HQ of 5th Bn Seaforth Highlanders and have no connection to Sutherland other than that they enlisted in the county so they may well be listed on other Scottish war memorials.

I have also added those listed on the Reay and Edderton memorials. although one was is in Caithness and the other in Ross & Cromarty they are so closely connected to their nearest Sutherland communities and shared so many names it was worth including them as well.

I will update this list if I find out any more information and I would welcome any other information on these men and women.

VC Citation: An extract from the "London Gazette," dated 30th April, 1918, records the following:-"For most conspicuous bravery, determination, and gallant leading of his command. The enemy attacked on the right of the battalion frontage and succeeded in penetrating the wood held by our men. Owing to successive lines of the enemy following on closely there was the greatest danger that the flank of the whole position would be turned. Grasping the seriousness of the situation, Colonel Anderson made his way across the open in full view of the enemy now holding the wood on the right, and after much effort succeeded in gathering the remainder of the two right companies. He personally led the counter-attack and drove the enemy from the wood, capturing twelve machine guns and seventy prisoners, and restoring the original line. His conduct in leading the charge was quite fearless and his most splendid example was the means of rallying and inspiring the men during the most critical hour. Later on the same day, in another position, the enemy had penetrated to within three hundred yards of the village and were holding a timber yard in force. Colonel Anderson reorganised his men after they had been driven in and brought them forward to a position of readiness for a counterattack. He led the attack in person and throughout showed the utmost disregard for his own safety. The counter-attack drove the enemy from his position, but resulted in this very gallant officer losing his life. He died fighting within the enemy's lines, setting a magnificent example to all who were privileged to serve under him."
