About the memorial: Iona Iona is just a short hop on the ferry from Fionnphort at the western tip of the Ross of Mull. The island's War Memorial is a grey granite Celtic cross which stands overlooking Martyrs’ Bay, or Port nam Mairtear, a beach where 68 monks from the abbey were slaughtered during a Viking raid in 806AD. The Iona War Memorial was unveiled on 7 July 1921. Its interlaced design was taken from an old slab in the Nunnery. As well as name and unit, this war memorial records the age and rank of the men who lost their lives.The front pedestal lists the WWI dead with the dedication at the base while the sides of the pedestal bear the names of those who died during the Second World War.
