Inverness-shire, Scotland, 2005

The plaque on the Commando Monument at Spean Bridge carries the simple inscription:

In memory of the officers and men of the Commandos who died in the Second World War 1939-1945.
This country was their training ground.

Each year, fewer surviving veterans attend the service of remembrance on Armistice Day, and the Commando Association officially disbanded in 2005. Scott Sutherland's evocative bronze tribute to the Men of Steel overlooks the mountains of Aonach Mor and Ben Nevis.
