A memorial service to the men of the Ross Mountain Battery who died at Gallipoli takes place on Tuesday, the anniversary of the ill-fated landing.


A new plaque will be unveiled by Colin Scott Mackenzie.


The short service which is open to all commences at 7.30pm at the drill hall on Church St, Stornoway.


The Stornoway-based military unit was in the first wave of landings - were amongst the first to storm the Gallipoli Peninsula, in what is now modern-day Turkey in 1915. They were also one of the last to leave.


The allied naval and military operation tried to force the Dardanelles to secure entry to the Black Sea.


There will be light refreshments available before and after the service.
