If asked, I will happily post on the forum (or email individuals) that part of the Memorial that contains the details of a specific individual. Furthermore, I would also be prepared to email higher resolution photographs of this War Memorial.

The memorial was unveiled on Wednesday 23rd August 1922 by Mrs. Grant of Edinburgh, the wife of one of the fallen. An address was given by Lord Forres.
References:
The Northern Scot, 25th december 1920
Forres, Elgin and Nairn Gazette, 30th August 1922,
The Northern Scot and Moray & Nairn Express, Sat, September ? 1922

The Forres war memorial features the statue of a Seaforth Highlander by Edinburgh sculptor Alexander Carrick which is 7'9" high and stands on a 13' high cairn type pedestal constructed of blue whinstone from the Califer Quarry. The overall concept and design of the memorial was by the Aberdeen architect L. Marshall macKenzie who was also responsible for the City of Aberdeen war memorial.
The sculpture was based on Carrick's bronze statuette of 'Jock' which was exhibited at the R.S.A. in 1920. Carrick however could be a stickler for detail and wrote to the Forres war memorial committee requesting a kilt as worn by the local Forres battalion, the 6th Seaforths, to ensure that the kilt hung exactly right on his model.
For more information on the sculptor there is a website at:
