RAF Kinloss Nimrod memorial for 14 servicemen approved

From the BBC News website. This will be welcome news to Scottish War Memorials Project member "Roxy", who has taken an interest in these men and successfully worked to get the name of one added to a local war memorial.

A memorial in honour of the servicemen who were killed when a Nimrod from RAF Kinloss exploded in Afghanistan is to be erected in Moray.

Fourteen men died when the aircraft blew-up in mid-air in 2006.

Moray councillors have now approved a 14-sided cairn, standing 6ft high, to be located on a landscaped area close to the war memorial in Forres.

The cost of the memorial will come from donations received by families in the wake of the tragedy.
