Moray-specific information is revealed in this RCAHMS Built Heritage Report pg 62 Moray’s drill halls, pg 47 Table 22 Auxilliary hospitals and p67 Firing ranges.

N:B If searching for World War One buildings on the Canmore site above use the keywords World War One rather than WW1, World War 1 etc…. This generates more results. Ideally add the location you wish to look at, however “World War One Moray” gives no results so add a specific place in Moray e.g. “World War One Findhorn”.
