Let’s remember the Cruachan fallen
Sir, Thanks for the interesting and informative articles about Cruachan.
I visited the complex a couple of years ago for work reasons and while waiting for my escort to come out and meet me had a wander around outside the main office.
I came across a small stone monument which had been placed there as a memorial and judging by its size assumed that one or two workers had been lost during construction.
I was later shocked to discover more than 30 men had lost their lives during that time. I immediately thought they should have something a little grander, with the victims named on a role of honour and on a memorial located in the visitors centre where the general public can see it.
These people died terrible and untimely deaths and they should not remain anonymous.
A few months back I mentioned this to a power engineer working on replacing over-head lines. He told me his project had been stopped for a whole day because a colleague of his had broken his finger.
