    I looked under 'Monuments' hoping to see a picture of Tain's War Memorial, which is inside St Duthus Church. Because of its indoor site I have never been able to photograph it successfully, to show my father's name and that of his brother, the two Grants. They were the only children of Mrs Grant of Easter Pithogarty, Fendom, and were killed within a year of each other in the Second World War. Has anybody been able to take a good photograph of the Memorial?
