Aircrew Memorial Bandstand, Bellfield Park, Inverness

The Aircrew Memorial Bandstand is a small, six-sided bandstand in the Bellfield Park, Inverness. With a slated roof and a windsock weathervane, the bandstand lists in alphabetical order all the wartime airfields and anchorages in the North of Scotland. Round plaques in the balustrade name all the countries which supplied aircrews and display images of their national flowers. The bases named in this view of the bandstand are Dalcross, Dallachy, Dyce, Elgin and Evanton, while the countries highlighted are South Africa and Rhodesia/Zimbabwe.

The bandstand was presented to Inverness by The Aircrew Association, Highland Branch, and 'dedicated to those who flew from the North of Scotland in wartime and did not return'. It was unveiled by His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh on 3 July 2000. On many Sunday afternoons during the summer, live music of various genres is played in the bandstand.
