Sgt John Meikle V.C. (4th Seaforths) Memorial
Location: In front of Dingwall Railway Station
OS Ref: NH 552 586

This orginally was erected in Lanarkshire but it was moved in the 1960s because of vandalism to the safer location of Dingwall.

This man is in the news today after a proposal to name a new street after him in his home town has been rejected.
