SHIELDAIG WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 - Detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Russell Edwards 2018

Shieldaig (Scottish Gaelic: Sìldeag) is a village in Wester Ross in the Northwest Highlands of Scotland. The village was founded circa 1800 with a view to training seamen for war against Napoleon. After Napoleon's defeat and exile to Elba, the community found itself a new role as a fishing village.

The Shieldaig memorial is in an elevated position on a rock at the north end of the village. It takes the form of a two stepped, square base, surmounted by a tapered plinth, a tapered column and an urn style sculpture with the inscription carved on the front face of the memorial and painted in black lettering. There are 15 servicemen listed for World War 1 and one civilian; there are three names listed for World War 2 plus one civilian.

The names are listed by the person location but have bene sorted here into alphabetical order by surname, forename within conflict for ease of reading and research.
