A new plaque inscribed with the names of military personnel killed in conflicts since 1945 has been unveiled at an Inverness war memorial.

The ceremony at the Cavell Gardens monument took place on Saturday.

Royal British Legion Scotland's Inverness Branch and Highland Council had asked families in the city and surrounding area to provide details.

Conflicts since 1945 include the Korean and Falkland wars and operations in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The war memorial on a bank of the River Ness previously commemorated only those killed in the two world wars.
