This Memorial is just off the A96 in the grounds of the 'world famous' Bervie Chipper.

See the 19 OTU website, including Roll of Honour.

http://www.19otu.org.uk

This looks to be the location: NJ015581 by the A96 a short distance west of Forres.

There is also a model of a Whitley in the same place.

I'm pretty sure that the Halifax was a four-engined bomber.
Could this model be a Manchester?

It's an Armstrong Whitworth Whitley, which was the aircraft used by 19 OTU.
