War memorials in the North-East of Scotland


There are hundreds of war memorials in the North-East of Scotland from both world wars. On this page I offer just a very few. Should you pass one in your travels I urge you to stop for just a moment and take a look. Lest we forget....

As far as I can ascertain the granite yard on this site disappeared in the mid-1950's. The memorial sits precariously on a single section of wall, behind which is a car park for a clothing store. It's largely missed by the few pedestrians who pass by. Let us hope its long term future is secure.
