Memorial to commemorate the evacuation of the population of Inver, Tarbat and Fearn during WWII.

'THE EVACUATION 1943-44

This stone commemorates the contribution made by

the people of Inver and the Tarbat and Fearn areas

who left their homes and land at short notice

from December 1943 to May 1944.

Their evacuation was needed to enable British armed forces

to prepare for the Allied Invasion of Normandy.

This concentrated training of the 3rd Infantry Division

and the naval Force 'S' was considered vital

for the D-Day landings on 6th June 1944,

and helped bring World War 2 to a successful conclusion.'
