    Hi - From The Scotsman - Tuesday, 1st August 1922, page 7 "ARDGAY - A monument to the soldiers of Kincardine parish, Ross-shire, who fell in the war was unveiled at Ardgay by General Sir Walter C. Ross, K.B.E., C.B., of Cromarty in presence of over 2000 spectators. The marshalled procession was headed by the Seaforths pipe band. The monument is of granite, surmounted by a life-sue statue of a Seaforth Highlander on guard. The polished panels bear the names of 33 parishioners who fell."
