WMR 69534

This is a Cairn with stone tablet, which reads-


H.M.S. ST. CHRISTOPHER/We in Coastal Forces came to Fort William during the Second Great War/and were billeted in the Highland, Waverley and Grand Hotels./The Royal navy gave them the collective name of H.M.S. St Christopher./On Loch Linnhe we learnt the art of small boat management./As veterans we have returned to the Highland Hotel each year/since 1985 to remember a great many of our shipmates who were/lost in that conflict and subsequently./Lest we forget...//
We shall Remember them.//
This cairn is erected by the North British Hotels Trust and/through the goodness of Norris D. Beith OBE, its chairman

It was unveiled in October 1997
