The polish monument was built by the soldiers of the polish army who were camped there. I can remember going up the castle road by what was known then as the horseshoe bend, and going through the polish camp....the soldiers always were glad to see us and welcomed us everytime. The camp stretched from the castle road right to the tomich road connection. I can also remember when they left the camp, they made a long convoy from the camp to the railway station and the people of invergordon lined the high street to wave goodbye....I understand some of them married some local girls and stayed in and around Invergordon
