This new area of County Sutherland is our place to remember all those brave men and women of Sutherland who gave their lives in wars.The war memorials of Sutherland include many young men who had emigrated from the county to Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. We salute them all and those men who have fallen since and those falling today. We Must Never Forget, We Will Not Forget. The two images above are beautiful cards or keepsakes created by the girls at Touch of Class. Without the expertise of the girls I would never have learned how to create sites like this, restoring old photographs etc. Their successful card and desktop sites bring lots of new visitors to our main website. Thank you all for supporting them.
