Comments: A meeting of the subscribers to the Strathdon War Memorial Fund was held in the Lonach Hall on Saturday evening — William Wattie, Gowanbrae, presiding. It was intimated that the total collected was £254 18s. and that Colonel John Michie, Toronto, had offered a donation of £50. The total amount, after all the subscriptions had been received, including the proprietors donations and one or two balances from entertainments, is expected to be about £500. It was agreed to accept the offer of £325 from Mr Taylor, Aberdeen, for the monument, which is to erected at the junction of the road .leading to Belnabodach with the main road. Two committees were formed, the first for preparing lists of names and a suitable inscription and arranging for the lettering, and the second to deal with the work of erection.
