War Memorial, Thurso

Thurso War Memorial was erected in 1922 for the commemoration of those who lost their life in World War I. More names were added after World War II. On top of the stone base is a bronze sculpture depicting Victory sheltering a child (the symbol of peace).

Situated on the Pentland Firth in the sheltered Thurso Bay, Thurso is the most northerly town on the Scottish mainland. Thurso is a long established town with origins dating back to Viking times when it was an important Norse settlement and the major gateway to mainland Scotland.
