GOLSPIE WAR MEMORIAL
If you have a relative listed on the Golspie War Memorial, please get in touch with us through our "Contact Us" page. We would love to hear from you.
Our Book "Golspie Remembers 1914-1918" is now available to buy for £6. This has been a long and very rewarding process undertaken over the past five or more years and we hope we have "remembered" those from our village who never returned from the First Wold War.
Thanks are due to many people, especially to the late Johnnie (Christie) for his invaluable help, to the family members and local ex-service men who attended our ceremonies, to Patrick Marriott for his diligent research on the military aspects and to Tim Griffiths for his patience in putting the layout and look of the book together.
Please get in touch here if you would like a copy of the book or you can purchase one from Lindsay & Co., and Mitchell's Chemist, both Main Street, Golspie.
We also have information and photos on our WW1 memorial ceremonies at Golspie War Memorial Facebook page.
A video is available of our Exhibition commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the start of WW1 and is available here.
One of our members has visited several of the War Graves sites of France and Belgium. Some photographs are available below:
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission has kindly given permission for the information contained on its web site to be used for this project. The information relating to each of the war dead together with the maintenance of the war graves is a monumental achievement for the Commission and by no means covers all the work performed by it. A debt of honour is indeed owed to the Commission itself.
