A monument to the north of Dundee off the main road from Dundee to Forfar, at the bottom of Powrie Brae, the Black Watch Memorial was erected in memory of those 440 men recruited from Dundee and Angus to serve in the Black Watch, 4th and 5th Battalions, who died during the Second World War. Unveiled in 1959 by HM Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, in front of 3000 people, the bronze memorial takes the form of a soldier in Black Watch service uniform looking down over the city.
