Quite by chance I was trawling old Northern Times and found an article about a 2WW casualty RAF w/o Forsyth- I was surprised to read that his father had been the station master in Brora and so obviously the death of his son in Italy was reported in our local paper although his death/name is on this memorial in Moray as he father had moved to Forres as station master- a random posting of mine............

Thanks Morag. Not a random post at all. It highlights the importance of local newspapers about reporting items of interest to people in other parts of the country.

There may be nothing in a Forres/ Moray paper highlighting his time in Brora.
