Naval, Military & Airforce Bases Plaque in Bellfield Park, Inverness

This plaque is displayed on the side of the Aircrew Memorial Bandstand in Bellfield Park, Inverness. It supplies a map of Northern Scotland's Naval, Military and Air Force bases.

The Aircrew Memorial Bandstand is a small, six-sided bandstand with a slated roof and a windsock weathervane. Below the handrails are listed 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 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.
