Hotels near Memorial To The Men Of Force K6

This incredibly special, beautifully detailed memorial is dedicated to the 13 Muslim & 1 Hindu soldier interred in Scotland from the British Indian Army - Royal Indian Army Service Corps Force K6 - Animal Transport Regiment. The soldiers came from pre-partion India from an area which is now in Pakistan. Most of the companies escaped from Dunkirk to England where they were repurposed to support British Army in World War 2. Force K6 was sent to Badenoch & Strathspey where they supported the 52nd Lowland Regiment and other Army. 9 of their graves are located in Commonwealth War Graves at New Cemetery, tended for 70 years by local resident Isobel Harling (British Empire Medal) because "her boys" are all "Jock Tampson's Bairns" meaning - we are all of the same skin. The black marble is imported from India, with faith inscriptions and the names of all interred soldiers with their dates of death. The memorial is triangular shaped to represent faith, hope and charity - with the front face of the memorial is aligned east to west towards Qibla (Mecca). The memorial is encapsulated in a circle representing the "circle of life", the stone top of the memorial sloping away towards the ground to mimic the height of the Cairngorms sloping away to the seas which would take the soldiers back home to South East Asia. The memorial is accessible by wheelchair, and made from locally sourced stone, crafted by local stonemason Marc Bruce. The memorial slab was carved, gilded and installed by Andrew Stewart Memorials. Memorial courtesy of Highland Council & donation by Scottish Ahlul Bayt Society.
