Commando Memorial, Spean Bridge, Scotland

This evening, I am posting information on a popular visitor site in the Scottish Highlands.

The Commando Memorial at Spean Bridge was unveiled  in 1952. It was erected to commemorate a unit of British special forces who were raised during WW2 and trained in the area from 1942 onwards.

The monument is made of cast bronze and was sculpted by Scott Sutherland ( 1910-1984).

Spean Bridge is some 8 miles N.W.of Fort William.

The monument is set on a prominent location which offers good views of the Nevis Range of mountains, including Ben Nevis and Aonach Mor.
