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. Jock Bruce very kindly shared a lot of his research on the Sutherland men of the 5th Seaforths with me a few years ago.

I will post all the data I have onto the formum 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 will update this list if I find out any more information and I would welcome any other information on these men and women.
