This Scottish memorial is set in a historically appropriate location. The site chosen is on the height of Frezenberg because this is the area where the Scottish 15th Division was involved in a series of bloody attacks on both 31 July and mid-August 1917. The site offers a perfect view of the former battlefield where the actions took place.
High Cross or Celtic Cross
The undertaking was unique because it opted to dedicate the monument to all persons of Scottish descent who were involved in the First World War. The shape of this monument is a ‘High Cross’ or ‘Celtic Cross’, made in Scottish granite. The cross is about four metres tall. The inspiration for composing this monument can be found all over Scotland. In this way, the cross forms a symbolic link with the homeland.
