Carnoustie War Memorial

The Carnoustie war memorial takes the form of the freestone full scale sculpture of a soldier mourning over a grave which surmounts a high pedestal.
The pedestal is made of dressed sandstone and is flanked by curving walls bearing the granite tablets listing gthe names of the dead, and terminating in pylons. The memorial stands on a raised area approached by two curving stairs on either side.

Ground recessed LED luminaires were selected for quality of light, long life and robustness. The Glamox O74-R in a stainless steel finish complemented the location, using LED 'white light' to emphasize the structure highlighting the colour of the stone.
