Strachans - World War II Casualties

67 Scots bearing the name of Strachan (and derivative spellings) are recognized as heroes by the Clan Strachan Society, for they paid the ultimate sacrifice during World War II.  They gave their lives for King, country, and comrades.  A special thank you, to the Scottish National War Memorial for providing the Clan Strachan Society this information.   

They never die who live in the hearts they leave behind
