War Memorial in St Andrews, Scotland

Located at the end of North Street adjacent to the St Andrews Cathedral is this granite monument shaped as a Celtic cross with a sword relief. It was originally a tribute to Scottish soldiers who died during World War I. This work by Sir Robert Lorimer was unveiled in 1922 by Field Marshall Earl Haig, the founder of the British Legion in 1919. After World War II, the dates 1939 – 1945 were added. The inscription “Pro Patria” means “For one’s country” in Latin.
