Kitchener Memorial on Marwick Head
The grand, square stone tower was erected by the people of Orkney after the First World War, to commemorate Lord Kitchener and the crew of HMS Hampshire, sunk on June 5th 1916, leaving only 12 survivors. It is thought that the armed cruiser struck a mine laid by the German submarine U75.
