At Inverness Divisional Police HQ is a marble tablet which reads-
1914 1918/ TO THE MEMORY OF/ CONSTABLES/ DUNCAN CAMPBELL/ AND/ KENNETH MACKENZIE/ OF THE INVERNESS BURGH POLICE/ WHO FELL IN THE GREAT WAR/ ERECTED BY THEIR POLICE COMRADES


There is an image at-

Note: Unfortunately, so many soldiers and sailors with those names fell in the First World War that – in the absence of further details – it has not (so far) been possible to identify from the CWGC
Commonwealth War Graves Commission) database when and where these officers fell. Unfortunately, the officers’ details are not on record – the surviving Personnel Register post-dating their service. It has obviously been re-written in the 1920s to take account only of those officers then serving, and the previous volume was likely destroyed a long time ago.
