Hi, hoping to find out some more info, my granda served as a Sergeant in Lovat scouts ww2, was killed in Oct 1944, buried in Arezzo cemetery. He was Moncrieff MacMenemy. From what I've found so far, I think he was in A sqn when he died. He did train in Canada also as well as spending time in Faroe Islands. Would anyone have come across his name? The Melville book is very good & does mention him. Thanks

Hi,
I am the curator at The Highlanders' Museum at Fort George near Inverness. We have a permanent display of objects relating to the Lovat Scouts at the museum but I am interested in exploring the personal stories and memories of Lovat Scouts during WWII. I would be very interested to hear from anyone who has oral history recordings, memoirs or diaries given or written by Lovat Scouts (preferably firsthand accounts) that you might be willing to share with the museum.
Please contact me through this site or my direct email can be found on the museum website (The Highlanders' Museum (The Queen's Own Highlanders Collection). 
Best wishes,
Laura.
