Description
Plain Brass Plaque on wooden backboard This plaque commemorates the loss of three serving Ross & Cromarty Constabulary officers, whose Chief Constable allowed them to enlist in the Armed Forces during World War One. In some instances/forces, an officer would have had to resign his position to join up, but these 3 Constables clearly went off to war, while still serving police officers.
