Remembrance

This was taken at Glenfinnan (Lochaber, Scotland, on the famous Road to the Isles) a few weeks ago.

You might have heard of Glenfinnan. It was the place where the troops supporting Bonnie Prince Charlie gathered at the start of the 1745 Jacobite Rebellion. Also the viaduct there featured in at least one of the Harry Potter films.

Remembrance 1

The memorial is by the side of the road and behind it there is a sheer drop about two houses high.

I cautiously went around the back to find the inscriptions. There are only seven names; seven went to the war and none returned. At the time the community probably only numbered 100.

Remembrance 2

By this time it had started to rain so apologies for the raindrops on the lens.
