Lest We Forget: Commando Memorial at Spean Bridge

My cousin Simon (Hamish’s brother) stopped at the Commando Memorial at Spean Bridge on his way back home from North Uist (outer Hebrides) in late August. He took the photographs below that includes the following plaque remembering those who died during Operation Herrick in Afghanistan, which lists my nephew Sam Alexander (see Wiki entry):

I couldn’t help notice he is honoured close to where his MacDonnell of Keppoch Ancestors hail from a few miles up river along the Spean near Roybridge. RIP brave lad.
