Photograph (source unknown) of hospital staff of the US Naval Base Hospital Number 2, Strathpeffer.  Photograph appears to be taken on the bowling green behind The Pavilion.  The Highland Hotel is in the background, probably being the location of the hospital.

The pages which follow contain extracts from the Ross-shire Journal during the 1914-1918 War. Newspaper copies had been deposited with Dingwall Museum but over the years had become rather fragile and were in danger of disintegrating and so it was felt that this valuable record should not be lost.


As will be obvious, the quality of photographs leaves much to be desired but it has to be remembered that they come from The Ross-shire Journal of 1914-18.  If any descendant of these men and women owns "proper" photographs they would like to contribute, RCHS will be more than happy to include them.  Contact details are on our home page.
