About the memorial: The memorial is in the form of a wall mounted tablet, commemorating officers, non-commissioned officers and men of the Lovat Scouts who were lost during WW1 and WW2. There are no individual names inscribed on it. The memorial tablet was unveiled by Lord Lovat to the memory of some 400 Lovat Scouts who fell during WW1. In his address, Lord Lovat said the regiment had largely been recruited in the Highlands and it was fitting that their memory should be commemorated in the capital of the Highlands. He made mention of the magnificent service, carrying out special work, undertaken frequently in small, isolated bodies, and where courage, foresight and judgement which did not come to ordinary troops. He continued by saying these men had left a lasting memorial behind them from the fact that the War Office, a slow body to take up new ideas, had adopted the principle of the Lovat Scouts and made it a definite part of the Army that would take the field in the future. The Scouts were raised for war and during their 23 years existence, 7 of these years had been spent on active service.
