About the memorial: Newspaper report of memorial tablet unveiling on the pulpit inside the church. Confirmed by note on Canmore though no details. The Scotsman - Wednesday 1 February 1922 WAR MEMORIALS REAR-ADMIRAL LEAKE AT AVOCH . REAR-ADMIRAL LEAKE on Sunday performed the unveiling ceremony of the memorial erected in the Congregational Church , Avoch, Ross-shire, to twenty-one members , of the congregation who fell in the war . The memorial consists of a bronze tablet with the names of the fallen inscribed thereon , and is placed immediately below the pulpit, a panel having been removed to enable this to be done. On drawing aside the Union Jack covering the memorial Admiral Leake said, in the course of an address, that the brotherhood of the sea had never shown itself in a more remarkable manner than in our undisputed command of the seas. The very keen interest with which the shore operations were watched by those at sea could only be surpassed by their admiration and sympathy for those engaged in it . On behalf of all the flotillas who spent so long a time amongst them he conveyed a message of good will and an expression of extreme sympathy to those who suffered loss . About 148 men belonging to the church served in the Navy, and 45 in the Army , in addition to two nurses .
