About the memorial: Metal Plaque on the northbound platform on the 'Forsinard Flows' RSPB Nature Reserve Building. The words 'The Jellicoe Express 1917-2017' are around a blue circle which has an entwined anchor and ship's wheel at centre. Below is the dedicatory text in black. The rectangular metal plaque has an overall white background. This example is a valid memorial because of the additional interpretative material with it- only the Helmsdale and Crewe examples of this generic plaque are valid memorials for the same reason.
