Grantown on Spey - Badenoch & Strathspey District
UKNIWM Ref no. 8714

The Grantown on Spey war memorial is a grey granite classical fluted column on pedestal with a bronze wreath at the top of the column and a bronze relief panel featuring a highland infantryman on the face of the pedestal. The commemoration and names of the dead, including the dead of Grantown, Abernethy, Advie, Cromdale, Duthil, Inverallan, Rothiemurchus and Aviemore, are listed on bronze panels on the remaining three faces of the pedestal. These panels incorporate the names from both world wars which suggests they may be replacements for earlier panels.
The monument stands in the town square.
The unveiling ceremony took place on Sunday 18th September 1921 and was reported in The Northern Scot dated 24th September 1921. The unveiling was performed by the Countess of Seafield.
The qualification for having a name listed on any particular memorial could vary but according to the newspaper the 252 names listed on the panels "included all officers and men who were born or had resided in the district, who had enlisted while in Strathspey, or who had former family connections with the locality."

Some more photographs of the memorial. Notice how the bayonet comes out of the frame in this bas-relief.

And a RN officer

BECKETT, WALTER NIAPIER THOMASON
Initials: W N T
Nationality: United Kingdom
Rank: Captain
Regiment/Service: Royal Navy
Unit Text: H.M.S. Exeter.
Date of Death: 10/03/1941
Awards: D S C
Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead
Grave/Memorial Reference: Sec. 2. Old ground. Grave 105.
Cemetery: HAVANT AND WATERLOO (WARBLINGTON) CEMETERY

'Exeter' caught my eye. That was one of the ships which took part in the Battle of the River Plate on 13 December 1939 and forced the 'Graf Spee' into Montevideo harbour. Because of that her exploits are quite well documented and Captain Beckett's death can be found on the internet (although he was not present at that battle).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/W.N.T._Beckett

During this time Beckett’s health began to fail, partially due to the incredible workload placed on his broad shoulders with the running of the dockyard in preparation for war, and the refitting of the Exeter, but also due to injuries he had sustained earlier in his career.

During his time on the Dwina River in North Russia, he had been exposed to poison gas, that had caused damage to his chest and lungs, and while in CMB’s he had received shrapnel in his left knee. These wounds, particularly his chest, finally took their toll on him and he was sent to have chest X-rays. After a month of ill-health, through which he persevered at the dockyard, Beckett left on Friday, 7 March 1941, for the last time.

On the night of Saturday the 8 March, he had great pain in his chest and stomach. On the morning of Sunday the 9 March, two doctors saw him at home and he was taken to Saltash Hospital for an exploratory operation. He had the operation at 3.00 pm. His beloved wife Gladys saw him at 7pm and stayed with him. At 10pm he lost consciousness, and he finally died at 3.00 am, on Monday 10 March 1941, with Gladys holding his hand. This was the very day he was due to recommission HMS Exeter.

Looks like the panels have been re-painted since the pictures in the first post above.
