STORNOWAY WAR MEMORIAL - GNEISS

Pro rata, the island of Lewis and Harris lost more men than anywhere else in the British Empire during World War One, so it seems only right that the largest War Memorial in the Empire should be here on Lewis. The tower is also built in that local stone, Lewisian Gneiss so can join others here in my series on the rock.

It is a very impressive memorial and your presentation is very good.
