To compliment the local newspaper report here is the one in a national paper.

From ‘The Scotsman’ - 2nd April 1921

Resolis, Ross-shire

Brigadier-General Sir Walter Ross, of Cromarty, K.B.E., C.B., accompanied by Lady Ross, has unveiled a war memorial erected to a central part of the parish of Resolis, over the ferry from Invergordon, to twenty officers and men of this small parish who fell in the war. The memorial is an obelisk in grey granite, surmounted by an ornamental lamp with the inscription, “They were a wall around us by day and by night.”
