Do you know where the new location for the memorial is? The old one was at the junction of North Street and Anvil Gardens.

Adam,

The Memorial is about 100yards west of Rothes High Street on either Seafield Square or Green Street - I'll confirm next time I pass.

The war memorial erected at Rothes (Morayshire) for the 71 men from- the parish, who fell in the war was unveiled on Saturday in presence of a large crowd. The Countess of Seafield drew aside the Union Jack to disclose the names of the heroes. Provost Gordon addressed the gathering. The memorial is in the form of an Ionic column on a square pedestal with a unicorn on the top. The names are engraved on four granite panels.
