Tain War Memorial project began after being awarded a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to research the soldiers on Tain War Memorial. We hope to gather as much research as we can on each soldier using various sources on the internet and held locally at other museums, libraries and from the general public.
Private Thomas Campbell although born at Paisley was listed as a resident in Calrossie, Arabella on his records. He enlisted in the Seaforth Highlanders at Tain and was placed in the 3rd Battalion of that regiment.
Captain Keith Bethune Mackenzie, 2nd Seaforth Highlanders, is one of two brothers on the Tain war memorial. He was an experienced officer who had seen action in the South African War and received the Queen's medal with five clasps.
L/Corporal Colin Macrae was born at Lairg to the Rev Donald Macrae and his wife Annie. The family later moved to Edderton and it was here that Colin enlisted in the Tain Company of the 4th Seaforth Highlanders.
