The Royal Air Force satellite at Forres was constructed at Balnageith in 1940. The Whitleys of No 19 Operational Training Unit RAF Kinloss used this site until late 1944 and during that period trained thousands of aircrew for Bomber Command.

This cairn was erected in memory of the airmen and airwomen who served here and especially those who gave their lives while flying from Forres.

The cairn also commemorates the presence of the Polish Army forces who were billeted on the site between 1945 and 1947.

"We were but warriors of the working day"
