Somme 100 Anniversary and Moray

Moray Memories Project worked with local schools to research their local war memorials including Burghead Primary School who researched their local war memorial in Burghead. They found out about the soldiers listed on the local memorial on the main road through the village and in the local churches. There were a number of soldiers who died on or near the Somme area including John Main Cormie, David Main, Alexander Mackenzie and Daniel Main. Pilmuir Primary School and Aberlour Primary Schools also did their own research on their memorials, some of which is shown here.

More information on the Burghead Primary School project can be found here. 

The children of Burghead Primary created posters for the soldiers listed. Here are their posters for those who lost their lives at the Somme. There may be more but it was not clear from the Moray memorial book where they had died.
