Military Procession in High St - c1910

The date is a guess - when was the market cross moved to its current position in Church St? Note the house between Sydney house and Bank house on the left. When did it come down?

This might be the Highland Light Infantry who marched through Cromarty in July 1908

Looking at this picture and also picture #478 I think they might have been taken on the same day. There is a lady standing on the right-hand side, in the gateway of Fosyth House, wearing a hat with a white band, and she is in both photographs! Also the branches of the small tree on the left-hand side are identical in shape. This would mean a very large gathering of troops being lead by the pipe band down the High Street, and turning right into Church Street. Speculation, but would they have been going to a special church service? The reasoning behind this is that last year (2004) I also marched along Church Street, behind a pipe band down to The Links as part of the Urquhart Clan Gathering, and we had just come from a service in East Church.
