Memorial Wall 11 August

It’s been just over a year since the start of the First World War and as many of you will know we have been placing a cross on our Memorial Wall for every Black Watch soldier killed on each day of the centenary. So far we have placed 1,431 crosses on the wall.

The public are always welcome at our daily Memorial Wall service, which takes place at 11:00am. You can see the Wall in the grounds of the Castle.

    Thank you for the Roll of Honour since 11th August 2014. It has made me think, really tragic the loss of life on the British and German sides. Kind regards, P.C. Barclay, (NS ’56 –’58).

    • Thank you for following our project and for your comment, this has had a similar impact on all the staff here and many of our visitors and we will continue with the project throughout the centenary.
