Fersit is near Tulloch and although I can't find much on the internet from the names listed on the memorial you can get an idea of the area the estate covered and if you follow this link on Google Maps Street View. It is at the end of the road leading to Fersit and you can see the land around it which was the estate these men worked on.

Road to Fersit

Martin Briscoe has identified it as the Corrour Estate

http://www.mbriscoe.me.uk/page184.html

Fersit is certainly within the current Corrour Estate, it would be interesting to see if Fersit Estate was a seperate estate 100 years ago?

The Ross brothers are also be listed on the Roy Bridge War Memorial but not James MacIntyre or Donald Grant. It may be the Ross brothers were locals and the other two were recent incomers to work on the estate?

The Ross Brothers also have their own memorial in Kilmonivaig Church

Ross Memorial

The memorial lists them as from Lochtreig, Corrour.

Saw this Memorial earlier this week and realised that the men mentioned have been added to this site.
However, here's a picture of the Memorial hanging in the Fort William Museum.
