UKNIWM Ref no. 13464

Location at the top of Ben Nevis beside the observatory - therefore the highest war memorial in Scotland.

Thanks to a correction from the boss on the Ben Macdui post Embarassed , I remembered that I had visited this memorial on 21st June 2003 (my 50th birthday) but that was before I was so interested in memorials. Even so I had some photos from the visit although I would take more close ups today.

This memorial is kind of a compound memorial with several permanent panels alongside a number of less official memorials left around the main cairn, some with a military connection and others not.

The first photo is my own (no idea who the young lady is). I am not sure where I picked up the other two pictures and I would be happy to acknowledge them if I could remember the source.
