I would be interested in learning of any memorials to men from Aberdeen particularly one which commemorated W. Bothwell of the Gordon Highlanders

I have a list of memorials in Aberdeen. I'll try and post it tomorrow for you. I've no photos or transcriptions unfortunately and as yet it looks like we don't have anyone on the forum from Aberdeen.

Regards

Adam

There are memorial windows in the Church at top of Holburn Street ( Holburn junction). The plaque outside mentions the first use of militia abroad.

I have a book in the house which contains a photograph of the memorial stone for the South African War Veterans Association which is in one of the Aberdeen Cemeteries. I'll scan it and post it for you.

Here's a list I have of memorials in Aberdeen. It's not definitive but it shows two for the Boer War. One for Aberdeen and one for the Gordon Highlanders.

The Gordon Highlanders also have a memorial on the Esplanade of Edinburgh Castle for the Boer War. I have photos of it and will try and post them in the Edinburgh Section tonight

The photos on the forum aren't brilliant but the originals are better. let me know if you want copies of the originals.

Hi Jim,

If no-one else has answered, 5662 Pte. W. BOTHWELL appears on the Gordon Highlanders Boer War Memorial in Holburn Central Parish Church.

Regards,
Donny.

P.S. Photos to follow in the next 24 hours, hopefully.
