Fochabers and Bellie - Moray District
UKNIWM Ref no: 8712

The Fochabers & Bellie war memorial is a tall freestone fluted doric pillar surmounted by a sculpture which I believe to be an eternal flame. The pillar stands on a narrow pedestal which in turn rests on two low, circular steps.
The commemoration is set on a circular bronze plaque on the face of the pedestal, and the names of the dead are listed on bronze tablets on the remaining three faces (names listed by Service & regiment).
The monument stands at the entrance to Gordon Castle Policies.

The memorial was unveiled on the 8th June 1921 by His Grace the Duke of Richmond and Gordon. (ref. The Northern Scot 25/12/1921).
