Week 5: Silhouettes

The Commando Memorial is one of Scotland’s best-known monuments, both as a war memorial and as a tourist attraction. The morning we were there, busloads of tourists braved the biting wind of the moors and climbed up to where the 17-foot statue overlooks the training areas of the Commando Training Depot established in 1942. The monument is dedicated to the men of the original British Commando Forces raised during World War II. The monument was unveiled in 1952 by the Queen Mother. I was shooting into the morning light and was impressed by the silhouettes of the visitors who streamed to the memorial.

  1. I had to look close, as at first I thought it was more than one Silhouette statue, like they have out west. Some of the people look like they could be soldiers as well – in silhouette. Umbrellas look like rifles at a distance.
